Then it's fixed in HEAD, as I said before (that's why you're able to boot it

You can't save it, but you can use dmesg command in ddb to print it again and 
page through it. Obviously, retyping it by hand would be annoying so just take 
some photos.

Also, if you had used the serial console you could copy and paste it from 
terminal on another machine. But that currently needs a kernel built with 
SERCONSOLE option. I can do that for you if you have a serial cable and another 
machine to connect it to.

This does not look right to me, it's an address within motherboard RAM space. 
I'd rather expect 0xFFA1000 here. Are you really sure your G-REX is not faulty? 
Does it work reliably in AmigaOS?

ne2? Should be ne0 if you have only one network card. This does not look right, 
again :P.

What is the exact error message? I need the whole dmesg anyway to understand 
what's going on.

Cool, but I'd like to know what's up with that Realtek, as it should work just 
fine. Can you remove the Voodoo and put Realtek in its slot? And see what
