Hello and HELP!

I'm at my wits end trying to get MacBSD to boot.

I have a MacII, PMMU, 8Meg of RAM, an internal
80 Meg Quantum and an internal 240 Meg Quantum.

I've followed the installation instructions
carefully, and even tried different things
to no avail.  Here's my problem...

I get all the grey bars and things seem to
going well.  The configuration of the various
devices is printed on the console and then

	B: Swap `...`
	A: Root `....`
	panic: init died
	kernel trap: calling kdb_trap(15, &frame)

	stopped at 0x20000005

Trying to type commands at the debugger prompt
is almost useless as only some of my keystrokes
are caught.

The MacBSD software I retrieved from the cray
site around December 27 or so, and I've even
tried the newer kernel and booter.

I'm using System 7.0 on the Mac side (no apparent
way to turn the cache completely off).

Perhaps I am just missing some files?

My current configuration is:
80 Meg drive: A/UX Root ~60 Meg, 16Meg Swap scsi 2
230 Meg drive: Mac partition scsi 6

I'm running the booter off the 230, but I've
tried all sorts of partition variations...

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
