Yes, I just checked it again, it is 0x3ff. I am not an expert in these
things, but maybe my machine has not a "very good BIOS" - I once asked the
manufacturer about an update (it's a Gericom Laptop with SiS chipset) 
and got the answer that this can, for some strange reason, only be done by 
the the technical support...
So maybe it's just buggy or something like that... 
Nevertheless, GNU/Linux and GNU/Hurd work fine, just in the install
procedure I had freezes which looked like shared interupt-problems (PCMCIA?) to
