Thanks for the response. The problem appears to be
the kernel probes during startup. I get the same
behavior when I boot the CDROM. I went back to the
Debian 2.0 CDROM and it boots and goes into the setup
I attempted to "boot: linux debug", but it doesn't
give any additional information.
I then attempted to use the Debian 2.1 resc1440-safe.bin
image, and it fails at the same point.
Some change between the kernel in Debian 2.0
and in Debian 2.1 fails on something in my
hardware. I'll look at what hardware is
in the box next.
