I burned BETA3-amd64-disc2 and tried booting from it.
Again, regardless of what I tried, the computer locked
up and then powered down before it got to the kernel
copyright message.

Unlike my last fateful build of the kernel however, the spinner got to "|" instead of just "-" or "/".

I'm fighting the temptation to try BETA3-i386-disc2 to see if it does the same thing.
