  I guess that I do have a problem. I got the recent kernel from kitten. I
was not able to boot. It did give a message that it was trying to boot, but
it hangs up. I got quite a few kernals and tried them they all hung up. I
can only boot from the netbsd.CI (not kernel that I got from the
update bsdfiles.010294.tar from the cray-ymp updates and booter from
bsdfiles.122193.tar in the same update directory. I also got the tar-files
from the tar_files directory there.

  I know that this kernel netbsd.CI has alwas booted. But quite a few times
I have to reboot because fsck gives a lot of errors.

  Thanks for letting me know that my kernel compilation was not the isuue.
Let me know if I could try something else to boot with other newer kernels.

Thanks again for your help.
