[Oberon] Help! Boot hangs with "OBE"

I took the plunge; cooked up a diskette with Native "alpha"; fired it
up, and blew it somehow! ;D

the old FAQ entry:

Q: My boot manager was set up to start Oberon but at start-up my system
freezes after displaying the characters "OBE". What is wrong?

A: That means the second block of the OBL boot loader did not load

isn't doing it for me ;)

Some background info:

I installed Native on an existing AOS partition. No problems!
When I installed A2, I also installed the A2 Boot Manager. I can't
remember which boot option I chose during the "config" stage of the
install, but it was the one I figured would leave the A2 Boot Manager
alone. ;) I like it!

Anyway, when the install was done, I rebooted as instructed, the A2
Boot Manager didn't get hosed - whew! - Oberon showed up in the Boot
Manager, but NO JOY!

Clues please....
