thx Kris

i went over the kernel config file and it doesn't seem
so, i successfully made another 3 kernels w/ more and
more components in each, up to the point where the
only items i did away with were just the NiC cards teh
machine dowsn't have. In each case they all compile
fine BUT they all fail on bootup w/ exact same message
as the subject line above.

I did some digging in the mail list archives and it
seems this was a problem w/ the Sparc64 line early
last spring. Was this resolved or is it now appearing
in this amd64 ARCH that i'm using??

Is there another mail list i should be posting to
specifically for the amd64?
