The boot blocks worked with the ASUS P4B266 and Intel B865PERLK motherboards.
They stopped working exactly the moment when I downgraded the system to
the ASUS CUBX motherboard. And that motherboard worked fine with
NetBSD 1.6.1_STABLE's boot blocks and still does with the new
NetBSD-current bootblocks.
