New install of Hamm 2.0.10_1998-07-21

I am installing Hamm anew on a machine that I had managed to 
get Bo on (but only recently so I had nothing much to lose by 
zapping it).

Everything seems to go fine.  I have reinitialised all the drives with 
the bad block checking and done the full install.  When it comes to 
the final reboot everything seems to run fine including checking the 
drives and the root filesystem says it's loaded.

Then I get:

INIT: version 2.75 booting
INIT: No inittab file found

Enter runlevel: 

If I enter 3 I get:

INIT: Entering runlevel: 3
INIT: no more processes left in this runlevel 

and the machine is locked up, dead!  No other consoles, no 

I've done the whole thing twice with the same result.  The only 
other oddity I can see both times is that the driver installations all 
give a quick messages saying something like "root: no such user" 
before reporting the installation and its success.

Any thoughts, advice, commiserations?
