	Yes, I did, everything's ok... ;-)

	I thought so, too. But the only difference in hard- and software
between the running and the not-running machine ist Processor and Board,
I even plugged the old ISA-GraphicsAdapter into the Pentium to eliminate
any possible problem...

	The most astonishing thing for me is that the kernel receives a
new ring-status which obviously means for it that we were kicked out of
the ring. Does anyone know on which conditions the ring-status changes
to that value? Where after all is a ring-status set, I don't know too
much about TR, ye know...
