Hi Petr,

Yes I've tested this version and ABBOOT34, but sorry, they didn't
work when two SIMM's connected. With one SIMM (16 MB) it works very
well, but if I connect the second one. Booting breaks up with:

        Problem: block on freelist at 000f2c0a isn't free
        Out of memory for swapper
        Internal error: bad swap device

        Kernel panic: VTOP040: bad virtual address 504f600 (0)
        In swapper task - not syncing

Sometimes the message looks a little different, but always something
with "swapper"

I deleted all FASTRAM-Flags in the ataboot.ttp.

Hope it helps to find the error.

Ciao Marc-Anton
