Thanks!  I moved it to 0xe0000 and it worked.  It complains about spurious
interrupts (irq 9), but it works.  Thanks to Todd C. Miller for the same

Now, the Soltek mb is working OK (even the embedded audio (auvia)) - except
that if I plug in a PS/2 mouse, the poor thing won't boot.  It freezes
after the first bios screen, right after detecting the keyboard and before
printing the SCSI bios messages.  If I disconnect the mouse before attempting
to boot, it works - but if I plug the mouse in at a later time, the keyboard
freezes up (the system still keeps running).

I'm getting fed up with this peecee crap... wish my SS1+ was 1000 times
faster than it is :-{
