I thought it just skips testing the ide!
i just have IDE on my PB190
but on Duo230 (and it is listed in the support-list) as partly, I have SCSI

The support list sayes a Duo 230 should work particular.
a PB 190 is'nt in the list, but why does the Duo230 have the same problem
although it should work??????

sorry but, i don't knew another way anymore I've tried the mailing list, but
nobody could help me there!!!
please vorgive me if this was wrong.
I thought that when there is a problem like that on a machine that should be
supported( Duo230) and it hangs it could be a bug!!
