Thanks for the help!
OK, I pressed F6 and typed "irqpoll" at the end of the list of boot
options, which now read as follows:
Boot Options z ramdisk_size=16384 root=/dev/ram rw quiet -- irqpoll
Now it comes up with exactly the same response, except that after the
first repetition the following appears:
starting system log daemon: syslogd, klogd
Then the screen goes blank and the machine crashes.
Any more ideas?
