I just tried the same thing, except that I blew away by old installation
first. Install finished normally, but on the first reboot it hung up on
the IDE stuff again. Since I'm dual booting with win2k I decided to
replace the ancient bootsect.bsd file I had been using with /boot/boot1
from the livefs cd (disc2). Same results. Now what?
Its weird how it will boot from the cd w/o problem but it barfs from the
hard drive. I don't have a non-dual boot machine to try...I wonder if
that's the problem.
Has anybody filed a PR for this yet?
