This message is not harmful and probably has nothing to do with
the crash. Are you booting from CD? Many computers can't seem to 
boot from CD (including the two I've tried it on!).

If I remember correctly, the mcd device is for the proprietary 
Mitsumi CD interface, but you say you have an ATAPI drive. This could
be a problem.

pcmcia ethernet must be loaded after the boot, at least for the

If it crashes during the boot how do you get /proc/pci output?
