Kernel 2.4.18 & Alpha 2000 4/200


I'm trying to get my machine up and running on the 2.4.18 packaged
kernel and after some messing around I managed to get it to load the
initial ram disk (the image was too large).

Anyway I managed to get that sorted but the next problem I am having is
that it can't see the sda1 partition. (/dev/scsi/host0/bus0/target0/lun0
unknown partition table)

It see's all the other partitions on sdb, sdc etc but not sda.

If I boot the 2.2.20 kernel everything is fine.

aboot.conf has:

0:1/vmlinuz ro mem=64M initrd=/initrd.img ramdisk_size=8192

The disk is an old Digital RZ28M 2007Mb unit and the whole thing is
mounted as /dev/sda1 (I know / shouldn't be that big, it was a test
install that never got redone)

I've read a thread in the archives about partition tables on seagate
drives have a problem that makes them disappear, could this be the same
thing, and can I fix it by moving / elsewhere?
