If the IIcx is anything like the various SE/30's around, don't give a
ramdisk much hope. The SE/30's all die with a "Bad kernel buserr" during
NuBus slot scanning on startup.
See my other message about the SCSI thing... disabling interrupts is the
only reason it works at all. To verify this, try a kernel from
ftp://macduff.dhs.org/pub/cvs older than 2.2.14-073100.gz. I'm guessing
it'll die in a fit of SCSI errors. Let me know if that's the case.
