Umax S900 CD Rom problems...

Thanks for the help. I am running Mac OS 8.1 and using the BootX utility.
Out of curiousity, is there a difference whether I run 8.1 or 8.5? (If so, I
will load upgrade to 8.5, I have the disk but wasn't sure if it was fully
compatible with clones.)
I will try passing the arg video='tt128fb'. Your suspicions were correct, I
am trying to go with the Pre-R5 version. I will try 4.1 then try moving up
to Pre-R5 instead. Someone else also suggested that I try YellowDog Linux's
ramdisk.gz file (it is supposed to have an improvement in the installer for
the CD method.)
Will keep y'all posted!
