parameter set with nvsetram...  It looks to be quite a nice little
workstation when running Sarge.

Unfortunately, discover prevents the thing from booting with the 2.4
kernel.  Removing discover solved the problem, but it had been causing a
hard lock-up on boot (although, strangely, no problems with the 2.2

If anyone is working with a similar box in the future and wants to
