more info:

this is where it fails when booting up, where it often kernel panics:

Calculating module dependencies... Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer
dereference at virtual address 000003e0
 printing eip:
*pde = 00000000

 /etc/rcS.d/S20modutils: line 16: 146 Segmentation fault    depmod -a -q

it didn't kernel panic this time, but this looks like what it does when
it _does_ kernel panics.

okay, that was just my fault.  loose connection; dunno.

again, i'm at a loss.  what's going on?

thanks again!
