i've confirmed the proper setup of my bios.when i do a 
ctrl-alt-del to reboot after getting the above message,i get 
the following screenful:

Fatal trap 12: pagefault while in kernel mode  fault virtual 
address = 0xefc00000
fault code = supervisor read,page not present  instruction 
pointer = 0x8:0xf01860b0
code segment = base 0x0,limit 0xfffff, type 0x1b
             = DPL 0,pres1, def32 1, gran1  processor eflags = 
interrupt enabled,resume,IOPL=0  current process = 0(swapper)
interrupt mask = net tty bio
panic: page fault

my harddrive setup consists of 2 ide drives(c:,d:) and 1 scsi 
drive(e: which is 1gb in size). i would like to partition d: 
2  and install bsd in one partition and os/2 warp in the other. 
 it is my first taste of unix but i'm experienced with os/2, 
please help any way you can. thanks.
