RE: Omnibook 430- Other Operating Systems
Looks like there's more to this than just 32-bit disk access (and I'm no longer certain that actually has anything to do with it). I did a fresh installation of Windows with it disabled, and it hangs a few seconds after startup. Disabling advanced power management corrects the problem, but isn't a viable way to run the system. I'm reapplying tweaks/customizations one at a time until it stops freezing. If that doesn't get me anywhere, I might try a newer build of Windows, like WFW 3.11 or something. Or possibly go back to DOS 6.20, since that's apparently what the 430 shipped with.

If any of you guys with a 430 is really hard up for entertainment, I'd be curious to know if that model has the same problem running a stock 3.1 installation in 386-enhanced mode.
