Sure, it does on a PC, but booting DOS from a CD as emulated Floppy
brought me the same situation (after solving problems concerning DOS's
need for the A20-Line ;-)) - no Keyboard, so I'm wondering, whether the
current "BIOS" contains legacy keyboard support.
But I think I will try the new version of BootCamp soon, seems there has
been an update...

Unfortunately, there is no [scrolllock] on macs, but I tried both [ctrl]
and the Apple-Key...
But Ok, I shouldn't need to change the Config-Strings, anyway...

After trying to boot the latest version on VMWare, I came up with
another question: doest the standard build available as an ISO-Image
support booting from SATA-Drives without P-ATA emulation on the part of
the BIOS?
