That's precisely what I'm actually performinG. So far no error (this box
has 512 MB ECC Memory)

Perhaps, I'll rather install a 1.6BETA, easier to upgrade to current?

Anyway, since I'm stuck, that's what I will try in a few minutes.

Just a hint, which may think the problem is with SCSI controller (Compaq
inboard UW-SCSI2) :

1.5.2 kernel reports a 20 Mb/s transfer rate, while 1.6D reports 40 Mb/s
