Ok, now that I successfully booted the Install-floppy set for 1.4 I'm
somewhat certain that there _might_ have been some changes in the boot
code when going from 1.4 to 1.4.1... The kernel came up and seemd to
detect all my devices properly.
The only strange thing was that the LED on my hub went on when
'ifconfig'uring the 3C905B, but 'ifconfig' told me that cards status was
something like "no carrier detected"... I'll try a different NIC as soon
as I've downloaded the 1.4 binary sets. I think that I can live with
installing 1.4 for the moment, yet I think it would be interesting to find
out if the 1.4.1 install images are hosed or if it's some "buglet" in the
