Hmm, according to atari/stand/bootxx/bootxx.c,
the prompt could appear if "autoboot" is not set
in the primary, or the secondary bootxx fails to
initialize disk or to load bootloader.

As you wrote in another mail, the latest HEAD snapshot
seems ready. Could you try it first?

If it doesn't work either, please also try my previous test kernel
and sysinst.fs
with the set files in the daily HEAD snapshot.

Ah, yes, I missed to merge it. I'll rebuild snapshot with it again.
