Well, I finally got around to downloading a Haiku image (from Aug 20) 
after I heard you can get them pre-built on schmidp.com.  Big congrats 
to all of the developers, it boots!  And only six seconds from boot 
menu to...well...KDL.  ;)  But that's faster than it takes BeOS to get 
to the desktop!

What happened yesterday:

-1-2 seconds of nothing
-3 seconds of initial Haiku screen with sweet-looking logo in lower-
-1 second of blueish desktop screen with hand cursor in upper-left

Today I inherited a GeForce3 to replace my TNT1, and tried again.  Now 
the same thing happens, but on the blueish desktop there's a logo in 
the lower-right and "Workspace 1" in the upper-left.  But still it 
freezes at that point.  I tried enabling the logs and the bluescreen.  
It doesn't seem to make any logs in /bootvol/var/log, but the onscreen 
debugger works.  It says (IIRC):

PANIC: free(): address 0x806499b0 already exists in bin free list

Any idea how I can get it to work?  I'm on a PIII 933 w/320 on a Via
