have you seen this behaviour with actualy ide hard drives in laptops, as
well as with CF cards?  i'm seeing it in my ACER note model PC 350.
shipped with a 3GB drive, now dead.  i've tried a 212MB and a 125MB, they
both give me the above error right after:
	Mounting root from ufs:/dev/md0c

would this not suggest that the fs image in /dev/md0c is corrupt?  i know
that the image i copied to the hd is intact.

i've tried switching off everthing in the bios, and manually setting CHS
instead of using auto.  this did not fix the problem.

do you have any ideas?
