Jens, when you built those miboot floppies that worked, what command line
options did you use ? We currently have : 

  root=0200 load_ramdisk=1 prompt_ramdisk=1 devfs=mount

and :

  root=0200 load_ramdisk=1 prompt_ramdisk=1 devfs=mount video=ofonly

Also, could you give those daily built floppies a try, since you where able to
make it work previously ?
