Just as a follow up, on my Ultra AXe, it doesn't make any difference if
this is an IDE cdrom or a SCSI cdrom. Also, dd'ing the boot.flp to the
front of a hard drive produces the same results: The system hangs on
5.1-RELEASE with no useful messages when "Mounting root from
UFS:/dev/md0" Again, the 5.0-RELEASE cd works. Suggestions?
Thanks in advance.
