Well, I never really resolved this. I later tried taring at a sh prompt.
Same deal. I had tried manually chmoding the /mnt dir. To 777, but that
didn't help either.
In the end I gave up, and did a fresh install straight onto the CF drive
from the CD. I did try a 6.0 beta3 install, but it kept crashing early in
the install process, so 5.4 it is (for the time being).
