  the problem is that kernel crashes and i never get the login prompt, so
i can't do anything apart of set parameters in the boot menu.

  I have probed Hiten tips, but nothing improved. I don't know why
dfbsd cd crashes :|

  The BIOS settings are very poor, i cant touch almost anything, apart
of starting options and some plug & play settings. I am new to IBM, so
i dont know any cheats.

Thanks a lot for your attention.
