Excellent -- The first test I would like to see is the following -- can you
mount the boot floppies on a working system and make the following changes to
the rescue.bin image:
1) change the file /etc/inittab to remove the "null" at the
beginning of the line running rcS
2) Change /etc/init.d/rcS so that the first line reads
The umount the rescue image, and try again. Changing things
the way will avoid all the pain of recompiling everything.
