Tried using the replacement vkda.386 instead of *vkd yet? It's such a 
common problem that I'm wondering why nobody has mentioned it yet.

I'm planning on getting a 486 notebook (for the university it may be 
quite useful, they have wireless LAN here); it looks like it's going to 
be a Siemens-Nixdorf PCD-4ND w/a DX/4-75, 20 megs of RAM and an 800 meg 
hard disk.
