I'm glad that it helps indeed! It never occured to me that this could be
the problem here... I still don't understand _why_ it helps. Frustrating not?

I haven't come to do this yet. The changes are quite small though (if you
just want to nuke relocation that is). Change the following piece of code:
[ .../atari/atari_init.c ]
* If we have enough fast-memory to put the kernel in, do it!
if(ttphysize >= end_loaded)
kbase = ttphystart;
else kbase = 0;
kbase = 0;

Weird. In my fstab there is a line:
/dev/cd0a /cdrom cd9660 ro
'mount /cdrom' just works...so does 'mount -t cd9660 -r /dev/cd0a /cdrom'
