I'll try again when I find the time, but I was less lucky. Maybe I didn't
use the right SCSI options for the kernel, I think it worked for a little
while before SCSI errors came up. But its been a while...

In the long run, I want to close the case again. And since it is basically a
C64, just a little larger, there is only room for one 2.5" disk, SCSI or
IDE. I think I could in principle boot from floppy, too, but I'd rather
make use of the HDD, there should be enough space for a TOS partition.

Maybe you can give a talk about that at the next meeting in Oldenburg? I
think it is worth learning about different ways to achieve a goal.
And what I wanted to ask for some time, how is your colour HP doing, are you
still happy with it? Did you have to replace the toner, are the costs for
that reasonable? I am so tired of deskjets, I just want a working printer
and not dirty fingers...
