Emile refuses to boot from floppy on an SE/30.
The screen shows a "sad mac" with the following two
rows of digits under it:
0000000F
0000000C

This occurs with the original emile 0.4 bootdiskette
and with one I made myself with a more recent
kernelimage (2.2.25, march 2004) using the emile-tools.

    Do you have message before EMILE splash screen or when it
    enters into kernel ?

    It never got to read anything from the floppy at all, it
    refused to read from it. For an expalanation of "sad mac"
    codes look here for example:

    Mac SE/30 has SSW 6.0.3. It doesn't support Gestalt() used
    by EMILE.

    Add specific code in AMILE to identify SE/30 according its
    ROM identification number.

    FYI, SysEnvirons() doesn't work too (no reason found).
