do you have support for the device you're trying to boot from? adaptec 2940
isn't bootable, period. it's missing an OF 'open' word.

read man quik.conf.

also an option that was added with the new code, is that pause-after=
option another list member posted. probably should go in the same
section as the root= and partition= options.

"I believe that part of what propels science is the thirst for wonder.  It's a
very powerful emotion.  All children feel it.  In a first grade classroom
everybody feels it; in a twelfth grade classroom almost nobody feels it, or
at least acknowledges it.  Something happens between first and twelfth grade,
and it's not just puberty.  Not only do the schools and the media not teach
much skepticism, there is also little encouragement of this stirring sense
of wonder.  Science and pseudoscience both arouse that feeling.  Poor
popularizations of science establish an ecological niche for pseudoscience."
