Yesterday, things got weirder.
Yesterday, I booted it from the original slink release CD, which had no
difficulty recognizing the logical drive, installing upon it, and booting
from it. No, it doesn't make any sense to me why an unmodified 2.0.36
kernel under slink had absolutely no problem with it, while 2.2.13 and
2.2.14 under potato just sat there staring into space.
But I need to install Lotus Domino on this system, so I have to tempt fate
and rebuild a 2.2.x kernel so it will actually run. Oh, and it's a dual
processor P3/733 Xeon system, so I really need to be running 2.2.x. for
