Thanks. This guide got me the idea to try to install on another
hard-drive :-) My guess at why it wasn't working:

 - GNUMach (says the guide) reacts badly to shared IRQ's
 - My SCSI card is basically two SCSI controllers on one chip, and
   those two controllers "obviously" share the same IRQ.

I installed everything on an IDE disk (same machine), and it works.

Maybe my SCSI card simply isn't supported by the drivers, or the Linux
2.0.36 driver has a bug that shows up with my specific card and that
was corrected only after?
