Freshly installed 98, on Scsi only system, hangs immediatly after startup as soon as I try to do anything but run a program from a shortcut. If I run windows explorer either from a shortcut, or the start menu, the computer slowly grinds to a hang. ie, the taskbar freezes, then the machine hangs. CTRL-ALT-DEL just brings up unstable/busy blue screen. The severity varies, ie sometimes no problems, somtimes nothing but problems.
The only thing I can see out of the ordinary is that IRQ 14 and 15 are being shared.
