Well, until now I used rawrite to produce about 4 rescue floppy disks. I
tried them all in order. I have the right order of booting.

When booting the floppy is accessed (*schrab* *schrab*) and then the hard drive
is read and my old lilo turns up. Well, I tried 4 discs that were ok (Just
checked at my other computer here, usual checks says nothing), 4 new discs.

There's nothing here I could imagine that does perhaps interfere with

Argh! Ideas? I don't think turning off Cache or so in the BIOS doesn't
affect this early stage of the boot process.
