Re: Huge Delay (CVS) or No Boot (0.92)

I've narrowed the problem down to the new serial port support.

The first 2 lines of my menu.lst are:

serial --unit=1 --speed=9600
terminal --timeout=0 serial

I noticed via printf()s that it hangs immediately following the terminal
command. I then removed those 'terminal' line from my startup and lo and
behold no delay, and the system booted just fine.

I'm going to see if I can dig up any more details. One other difference
about my configuration is that I have my bios set to redirect the
console output to the serial port.
