Ho! I'm getting confused here... Do you mean you have the same problem *you*
reported earlier - cannot mount root - or are you having the same problem as
kyle reported - unable to startup /bin/sh?
About the 'cannot mount root', could you try running the 'aptck.ttp' program
from '.../utils.tos' on that disk and drop the output to the list? Maybe this
will give an indication of what's wrong as it uses the same partition
recognition algorithm the kernel does. I also suggested this to Kyle.

This *is* wrong. The cause is that miniroot12.fs.2 only contains 40 sectors of
data. But if you want to use 'rawrite.ttp', you have to supply a full disk
image otherwise you get errors. So, because Kyle said rawrite was complaining,
I added 40 sectors of /dev/zero to the image and gzipped it again. Apparently
without updating the CKSUMS-file. I will correct this ASAP.
