Unfortunately, there's no panic output. Here's what it says when
booting from a floppy disk:

...various HW probes...
changing root device to fd0c
panic: double fault

syncing disks...

Then, the machine freezes. The same thing happens when booting from
the cdrom from dos, sans the "changing root device" line.
