Re: Problems installing quik on Powermac 7200/90

On  14 Mar, this message from Mark Baumann echoed through cyberspace:

2 beeps is OF changing configuration. I have no idea what it's doing
that needs a second chime...

As to why it doesn't boot the second time, I can only imagine that the
backup battery might be empty... Booting back to MacOS will reset OF's
settings, though.

Does it chime twice at every boot with your
boot-variables-resetting-script? If so, then some variables do indeed
get reset to default values.
