Nova problems

I have been in contact with a guy who has got some problems
with his AB040 and Nova. I'm not sure if I can help him
as I havn't got the problems he describes. Maybe someone on
the list has or might have an idea what the problem might be.

I belive that it's the TK driver which crashes when he runs with
Fast-RAM and I have no idea why this is.

Any ideas anyone?
