Nikita, you are the King! boot_flags was a misprint in my mail -- it was
really boot_osflags on the machine. I set panic=300 and saw the
request_module[nls_iso8859-1]: Root fs not mounted
Unable to load NLS charset iso8859-1
VFS: Mounted root (iso9660 filesystem) readonly
Freeing unused kernel memory: 160k freed
Warning: unable to open an initial console
Kernel panic: No init found. Try passing init= option to kernel
Which I guess is a good point. Can't seem to find a live filesystem
containing init on the CD. Should I be loading something into a RAMdisk?
