First You have to disable the USB from BIOS if not you'll get some panic errors. then create an AMIRD floppy and do this at the boot prompt : defbootstr link=amird Sdsk=amird(0,2,0,0) scsi.noscan It takes like 3 or 4 minutes to go over the F BTLD message but then it finally keeps booting up. I hope this helps you.
