Make sure /dev is populated if doing this manually.  If using udev, the
version with lenny fails with
new kernels due to glibc issue.  Recommend you install latest version of
glibc and udev from parisc
archive.  Maybe you could put old lenny kernel in palo partition and see
if it will boot.  Then, update
glibc and udev.

I'll give it a try when I get some time. Pretty busy today. Thanks. :)

Nope... the lenny kernel didn't do it either. I must be missing something. Just haven't quite figured out what yet. I'm going to have to sideline this thing for a while, since I'm getting really busy now with other work. Gotta move the HP back into the back room for now so I have room to work. :P

I was looking forward to trying that Fire GL graphics card again too... :/ I may try loading Lenny back on it later on, and try the upgrade path again and see if it works this time. Last time it failed due to A. a bad cable in my network, and B. a lot of unsatisfied dependencies or a combination of both. I've since replaced the ethernet cable that was giving me problems, so it may just work now.
