Yes, it booted once.  You need to do the following:

- you need a nubus video card
- you need to have a monitor plugged into it
- you need to have *no* monitor plugged into the built-in video
- you need to reboot so that MacOS detects the above and rearranges its
memory appropriately

That might help you -- let us know.  We're currently working on a version
which does not require the above restrictions.  (Note that the above only
applies to the IIci, not the IIsi.  You need at least 4 megs in Bank A,
and the IIsi only has 1 meg.)
