Traced this problem to pcmcia.  I've removed it from init.d and can now run 
the computer in run level 2.

So far, I've tried:
	S3Virge, all settings, then frame buffer, all settings.  Error reported is

	VGA, basic 640x480 settings, then frame buffer,  Error reported is 
"AddScreen/ScreenInit failed for driver 0"

As far as I can learn from Windows-xp, the video is: S3-VIA Twister 8mb (S3 
SDAC).  No details on the display were found except it handles
