You say you are running SCSI, and this may also be at fault for my
diagnostic... But what I can see wrong here is the drive ISOLINUX is
trying to boot from - I highly doubt your DVD-ROM is your system's 240th
drive! ;-) (0xF0 = 240) I suppose ISOLINUX is simply unable to see where
is the drive it can boot from.
