1) When you say that the extract `died in random places saying there
was an unexpected eof ...', I assume you mean that the location of the
error varied, so you're sure it wasn't as simple as copying the files

2) The ahb driver switches the card to `enhanced' mode automatically,
so it doesn't really matter how it's configured.

3) What are you using as a NFS server, what options did you use to
mount it, and are you certain it was exported correctly?

4) You said an `Adaptec 1740'.  Is it really a 1740, or a 1742 with
the floppy controller `disabled'?  The floppy controller on the 1742 I
have interferes with any other floppy controller, even it's

5) When you were assigning the partition sizes, what units did you
use?  If sectors, did you make sure to round to a whole cylinder
boundary?  (If you don't, FFS will fall over.)
