	Well, I tried and it is something like a script within a script within a 
script; at least, that is what 111952-03 is. Tried to hack a bit into it, but 
got no luck.

	It is not critical for this machine to have its PROM updated, although it 
would certainly be nice to have all these bugs fixed. I suspect that one or 
two that relate to the Davicom Ethernet driver may be upsetting Debian.

	So, any other hint?

	Many thanks,

Alfredo Sola
