It's on a CDQ-223 IIRC, and it seems to work fine during init (SHO DEV
shows the disk no prob).  Booting dies quickly with an error I can't
remember (PC=xxxx) - sorry, it's at home and I'm at work right
now.  Accessing the onboard diags/setup of the CDQ didn't reveal much -
the disk initialized and verified no problem, so SCSI termination,
etc... I think is out of the picture.

See for my fsck
woes from a while ago (Illegal instruction?).

But the boot just fails.  AFAIK I'm installing the bootblocks correctly,

At least it's not a problem with the CDQ - it's gotta be something I'm
missing or doing wrong.  That's comforting ;-)
