This is very useful to know. I will give it a try and report back on the

I'll take a look at this as well. Makeconf.boot is something I tend to set up 
only after realising that things don't work without it (and that it isn't set 
up by default, or maybe not in a usable way) and then I forget about it, but 
obviously it contains the options that things like UX (on IA32) need.

Thanks for the advice, and apologies for not figuring this out myself!
