Ah, I know what your problem is now.  Unfortunately, it's not a pretty 
fix (there may be a patch on BeBits, I haven't seen one but that 
doesn't mean it's not there).  The kernel has 2 entried in it that read 
"GenuineIntel".  If you can open the kernel_intel file with a hexeditor 
and change the second of those entries to "AuthenticAMD" you should be 
fine.  For some reason the boot hangs on fast processors unless you 
change the processor identification string.  If you're having to do 
this from windows, it's gonna be hard to look at the image.be file and 
fine the kernel, you may want to see if www.betips.net has a tip on the 
subject.  Also, you may want to read this:

process starts from the floppy disk. The little icon in the top right 
does its animation for about a minute then the sytem resets.

so I was wondering if there was any trouble with compatability. I guess 
I should wander over to BeBITs and see if they have any info.
