The box is a P200 with a circa 1996 BIOS. The disk is an IBM Deskstar 20 gig
loaded with early 2.0. While the system seems to have a limit of 8 gigs in
the auto detect mode, the generic kernel on the disk sees 20 gigs when it is

When I boot with "-s", the system goes through the boot process and comes up

init: single use shell terminated, restarting
enter pathname of shell or hit enter for /bin/ksh

It loops on the above regardless of shell entered.

I'm hoping to get this box to boot up to multiuser so that I can build and
install 3.0 beta on the box without installing a floppy drive.

Any ideas?
