Thanks for working so fast on this!  This is great.  I have some
bad news to report though.  I did the upgrade to 5.80 BIOS for
the 720 and the problem persists.  I sent Jen mail about it.
Your rescue disk works fine though.  Now I just need to install
that kernel.  Any idea how to do that?  I tried "activating" an
older kernel (2.0.6) but I can't run lilo correctly.  I tried to
do a chroot, but it gives an error about not being able to
resolve 'chroot' symbols.  This is probably on account of the
slimmed down libc on the recue set.  

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
