Follow-up for the archives, in case anyone else has a similar problem:

I found a winning combination. I set the "primary operating system" in
the SmartStart to "Other", built a kernel from brand new src that
*didn't* have IPSEC in it (not, FAST_IPSC, the older IPSEC).

That got me as far as the phantom USB controller hang which has been
discussed before. I then removed uhci from the kernel to fix that
particular problem and am now operating with a Dec 2 kernel and world

Thanks to those who gave me the hints needed to get this working,

means the handlebar is likely to fall off, and you will die in the resulting
