I don't have the machine up right now, but I don't think that would help much.
On Fri Oct 24 10:29:12 2003, someone removed this line:
device-major sd char 24 block 24 sd
from majors.shark in rev. 1.11
I don't know if this is the only problem, but now the zip drive that came on some sharks can't be mounted. The kernel sees it just fine during boot, though. MAKEDEV has no entry for the sd device and a mknod can't make a working device either. I'm surprised that I'm the first one to complain about this since then, but there it is. I would appreciate it it this functionality was restored, since this is how I normally install the operating system. Thanks.
Try to mount the zip drive.
Restore the line to majors.shark, but there may be other changes required.
