I cannot explain it, but for me:
FDHD ROM upgrade,
Toby board (Apple 8 bit color set to one bit in control panel)
Samsung 1 bit full page board (Labled Cornerstone on the case)
I cannot get any kernal to boot unless I turn OFF Mode32 or hold down the
shift key to disable all extensions. I only see 8 megs of memory, but a
number of the kernels work fine for me. I'm currently using the May16
version, I think (its at home and I'm not)
