Fine, that it is verified. :)

Yes, indeed I had the same trouble before starting my final try of the 
interrupt fix patch.
I use now SeaBios as bootloader, and i really like it because loading the 
kernel image from the HD is really fast compared to the old filo versions 
(without the new drivers).

As I mentioned before, I have a pending patch here, which works fine, but 
depends on the interrupt fix patch.
So, give me some time to clean up and maybe commit this patch.

First we need to clarify few lines of it, before committing it.

Don't try to do something like that, I'll send my patch in a few minutes to 
the list.
