The IRQ 9 is *probably* unrelated.

Although it doesn't excuse the presence of bugs in the first place,
problems with mounted filesystems affect the kernel itself, so I've
always been leery of mounting filesystems from unreliable media (like
floppies) and usually stick to using mtools.  Do you have the mtools
port installed?
