I also tested this with various settings for the card, and I got the same
thing in all cases.

Furthermore, I copied the supplied kernel to my 1.0 system, and tried to
boot on it. Same thing, and something's funny with my filesystem now too.
Selecting the old kernel from the boot: prompt won't work, it goes through
checking for devices, then hangs at the end of that. Booting off install
floppies won't let me fsck the drive... Any suggestions?
