if its so simple, why is it so expensive? do you know exactly what it is
doing? I don't... I would remove it (clgen works, so you do not need it, at
least not to install linux), also the octagon controller. I dont have an
octagon, nor an internal flifli, and my box works fine.

This is a message from the kernel and not from the boot-floppies. Are you
sure the keyboard is connected properly? Try booting without keyboard (not
sure if that works or if the machine reboots spontaneously when you remove
the keyboard,  might be dangerous for your hardware)?

Anyway, none of my business, you should ask on linux-m68k, I have never seen
that message (and I've seen some funny ones already, like printer on fire,
messages from martians...), you might want to read the kernel source, maybe
there is some more explanation. But the linux gurus should know about this,
one of them wrote the keyboard driver, they might help you.
