ok, i did all that. it was working fine until chroot refused to do anything,
complaining about being unable to "resolve" the "symbol" 'execvp'. seems 
like some sketchy deal where chroot is looking at some C code...??

so i opened ash and fixed up /etc/*tab ... fstab seemed especially wacky
so i fixed it as best as i could. it does no better booting now than before,
but with the boot disk it mounts the root fs readonly, then complains
"unable to open an initial console".


please continue suggesting what i should do... i'm so stuck! 
thanks a lot for your help.
