Hello ....

Alright, given a Jornada 720 with a 128MB CF card.

I prepared the CF card with two partitions.  The first is a MS-DOS
partition [id 6, 4MB long] that holds a copy of -current hpcboot.exe and a
gzipped -current netbsd ARM kernel.

The second partition [id 169, 118MB long] is a big endian ffs file system.
It contains most of a recent hpcarm build from, about
83MB worth.

The CF card was prepared on a NetBSD/i386 system, the ffs file system was
created with 'newfs -B be ...'.  The NetBSD/i386 machine was using FFS_EI
to mount the file system.  I used 'fdisk' and 'disklabel -I ...' against
the CF on the i386 machine, and used a MS-WINDOWS 98 box to format the
MS-DOS partition.

Something isn't right, however..  When I click on hpcarm.exe, I get the
'Push OK to boot.' popup, which I presume means hit the 'Yes' button.
After that, however, everything appears to hang and resets are required to
get control of the computer again.  The screen never clears and all key
responses are ignored, including the on/off button.  The console log
contains the following:

The bootloader noted that there was a console attached, so I would presume
that it would feel the need to use it, rather then a serial console.  I
specified that 'wd' be used as the source of the root filesystem, and I
presume that this will be the second partition on the disk.

I suspect that I am missing something obvious, but I am at a lose to
understand what.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks...
