Good luck to you. It's very possible that after reboot you don't get ssh 
prompt :) Most servers have console and "remote cdrom" through java. IBM call 
it RSA adapter, HP and Sun ILO(M) cards. Maybe the server have these cards.

Someone said on this list, that priority now are new features, so developers
have no time to fix bugs. I prefer stability over the new features also, and 
most of the people on this list I think. That's one of the reasons that 
I escaped from Penguins.

I'm not developer also, but I think that OpenBSD and FreeBSD developers
share the code. At least for scsi controllers and ethernet cards. So it's 
possible to have the same problem on OpenBSD. Could someone enlighten me?
