I tried your suggestion, doing an 'apt-get install kernel-image-2.6.8-1-generic'
The system did boot all the way up on the new kernel after hanging
for an extended period of time attempting to launch syslogd.
However, now I have a strange new problem. The system refuses to
mount /var because it is an 'ext3' partition. But the root partition
is an ext3 partition, and it *is* mounted. The console log shows the
following relevant message:
EXT2-fs warning (device sde5): ext2_fill_super: mounting ext3 filesystem as ext2
but then goes on as normal with everything, even saying that /var is clean:
INIT: version 2.86 booting

How was the root partition 'forced' into ext2 mode? Can I do the same
with /var, or must I redo everything as ext2? Do I have another alternative
(XFS, JFS, etc.) that will work better for root or /var or both?
