So you have upgraded the kernels on this system, and the sarge 2.6 kernel
boots ok?  Do you happen to have tried the sarge 2.4.27 kernel as well,
which is what's used on the sarge install CDs?

If you have a system that you can afford to test on, I'd like to know
whether remastering the boot block with a newer aboot (using the swriteboot
command) leaves you with a bootable system or not, so we can pin down
whether this problem is specific to booting from CD.
