Ick, my 3100 gets as far as:

I get to multi-user ok with -current on a 5900/260, but I'm having wierd
problems with programs going into diskwait for long periods (~5mins
maybe) then seeming to come good - things like "make" have become
painful...  I've got my source tree NFS mounted, but a -current Alpha
and i386 have no problems.

Ok, I just put my -current kernel on my 1.4.2 5000/240, and it does get
to single user ok, so it doesn't seem to be a r3k/r4k thing.  I dunno
what's hosed on the 3100 though.

My source tree is probably two or three days old, I'll "cvs update" and
try again on the 5000/240.
