Normally I would lurk here for a while, but with the proximity to the 1.4
release date, here goes...

I went to upgrade from 1.3.3 last evening, had lots o'problems on a P5-90.
I boils down to this: The boot drive is a Syquest Syjet, the SCSI card is
an Adaptec 2940. In the 2940 advanced setup is an option 'Support Removable
Disks Under BIOS as Fixed Disks' with values 'Boot Only', 'All Disks' and
'Disabled'.  Under 1.3.3 I used 'Boot Only', life was good.  1.4 will only
install if it's 'Disabled', but it won't boot that way, nor will it boot
after such an installation if changed back to 'Boot Only'.

Any suggestions? Thanks!
