With my computer during the start up process it would say RPL-ROM-FFC-xx and count from 1-200 and then restart. After restarting it would show the same thing with RPL-ROM-FFC and count from 1-200 all over again. It looks something like this:

Novell NetWare Ready Firmware v 1.00 (940810)
(C) Copyright 1991-1994 Novell Inc. All Rights Reserved.
VIA PCI 10/100Mb Fast Ethernet Adapter v 3.33 (11/09/2001)

Analyzing network Media type, this will take several seconds...
OK.

RPL-ROM-ADR: 000A E669 19E6
RPL-ROM-IRQ: 11
RPL-ROM-PIO: DC00

RPL-ROM-FFC: 198

What could be wrong?

Located from another wesite:

  1. Restart your pc and go to the BIOS. Check to see if your S.M.A.R.T for hard disk is disabled, if it is, change it to enable and restart your pc.

  2. Check you IDE cable, set the jumpers to cable select

  3. Check your BIOS and configure it to detect the hard disk automatically.

I had this problem, when I carried out those procedures, the PC was fine and is now runing very well.

From what I can gather, this means that your computer is attempting to boot from the network, so check the SMARTY config, set your HDD's to cable select, & make sure your HDD's have the boot priority over Network.
