Ah, this explains a lot :-)
When I added a Qlogic SCSI controller (and 9GB UW disk) to my XLT, I
couldn't get MILO to use the kernel on the new disk. Of course I now
realize what the problem is (2.2 ext2fs of course).  And a new MILO
didn't work (hung as described). I solved my problem by copying the
kernel to the FAT partition and booting off that.

I can test milos, no problem. I really only use the XLT for porting at
the moment.
