That was my major concern (ie booting from it). If you don't need it, then
that makes it much more likely to work for you, under LINUX.

It should be OK, though I've no direct experience with the "J" version,
at least AFAIK... ;-}

That's the BIOS emulation. If you update the SRM console to the latest
available (if yours is old), it *may* help this problem, as a newer emulator
(as the one in MILO obviously must be) may be better at running the BIOS
code on the ET6000.
