Might well be, but i can't get the failsafe loader to work either.
It doesn't matter if i jumper the board to read the failsafe image
from the diskette. I've tried swapping the SROM between a working 
board and the broken one, but that doesn't work. The SROM seems to 
be working, but you might be right. It could very well be the flash 
memory that's broken. If it's completely busted the board might not 
even be able to load the firmware from diskette.
