WEell I tried just giving a partition id of NBS on the IDE but it
didn't find it - I suspected something more was needed...

*cheers* I know just how to test it too... Discovered a sure-fire way to
trigger the MMU fault panic - "cp -R /usr/share/man /local"- it munges
away on the disk for 5 or 6 minutes and then panics - usually it then
panics _again_ while trying to dump the registers from the first

I'll gladly help, tho I can't promise anything speedy. I'm dying to
get rid of these panics too, if I can't I'll have to stop putting off
getting a PC :(
