I see in your PReP INSTALL doc that the Power Series 820 Thinkpad is 
supported by NetBSD. I'm trying to install NetBSD on one of those very 
beasties right now, but I can't seem to get the system to boot from the 
floppy made from the sysinst.fs image - it seems to load from the floppy, 
gets by the flowery opening IBM screen but then halts at a black screen 
with the floppy light 'on' but nothing apparently going on.

Any tips on booting this beastie to try out the PReP port on it?
