Ok, very weird. Now it works again, though the HD was corrupt (Kernel
panic when booting) so I had to reinstall it all.
What I did was to simply remove all cables, all PCI-cards, all RAM,
battery and all drives and the connector. Tried to boot, same thing -
not a single beep. Put everything back except the drive, and got the
beep. So, I put the drive back in. Nothing again.
Tried a different drive, and now I got the beep again. Turns out it
must have been a severely twisted ATA-cable that somehow prohibited
the mobo to POST. Don't know how, and I don't want to know, really :)
Thanks for all suggestions!
