 Uhm, good question.  I have to admit, that I did not read the kernel
 messages observant enough -- maybe I was a little nervous knowing what
 might (and did) happen...  :-(
 Would you consider this information worth the destruction of my now
 running 3.1.1[0] installation?  In this case I might be willing to offer my
 system a last time to the gods of debugging with a camera ready and
 aimed at the display (hoping the results will be readable).
 On the other hand I'm not sure if its really worth to go through all
 this trouble just to get pci support on this prehistoric piece of
 [0] The last version with a boot-tiny installation floppy.
     And in addition I wasn't able to get a 5.x kernel below 2MiB -- and
     even tough I was wrong stating having only 4MiB RAM, its really 8MiB,
     wasting more than one fourth of memory on the kernel seems no good
     to me...
