thanks a lot for your insight. I just pulled the source from CVS and
applied the mentioned patch but had no luck (tried running qemu both
with and without -isa). It keeps bumping on the "cannot mount root"
error and reboot automatically again and again.

Looking at the message output, it seems that there are problems when
mounting the root using the CDROM. I'll try to download the images again
and see how that goes.

Thanks a lot for your help.
