Boot off CF card hangs at "Trying to mount root" (was: Trouble with 6 boot/loader: system resets)

Compiling boot, loader, and kernel without a CPUTYPE setting fixed  
the boot and loader issues; however, the kernel doesn't seem to be  
happy with the CF card:

ad3: 489MB <LEXAR ATA FLASH 1.01> at ata1-slave PIO4
Trying to mount root from ufs:/dev/ad3s1a

Again, I can break into the debugger, but I'm not certain what I  
should be looking at.

I just tried setting the master/slave jumper on the mainboard to  
"master", but that didn't change anything, either.

Any suggestions?
