I've noticed some problems wit bootloader: when it comes to a boot

count from 10 to 0, but cycles in 9-8-9-8 and so on, and after 10
seconds prints some garbage on screen and hangs.
do you have serial equipment connected to those machines? modem, mouse,
dragonfly by default spawns a serial bootloader console, so this could
be the cause.
That's may be right. All those machines have an old-style serial mices.
BTW, a machine with the ISA non-PNP modem, (USR Sportster 14400, it has
his own serial port controller, as I can understand) boots with no problem.
