problem could be...

On a related note, I've noticed that sometimes on powerup ARCS BIOS
fails to detect the floppy drive and sometimes the keyboard and/or
mouse. Could this be related? What could be the cause of that? The
system is flashed with the last/latest ARCS BIOS (1.3.062) afaik. The
system does work, it still has NT4.0 on the disk. My other ruffian
(600MHz, 256MB, 23GB SCSI) doesn't have ANY of these problems. Any
help would be greatly appricated!
