What date was the re-org?  I have a copy from releng from 1-4-03 
which boots just fine on an 8500.  I think it says it's 1.6L, but 
that's from memory.

When I say it boots fine I mean that it boots fine once I get the 
disk spinning.  The wBoot OF patch doesn't seem to kick it hard 
enough and I haven't checked the motor enable jumper yet.
