Actually, it does boot, but the Ethernet card reports that the 
receiver overflows, and I end up not connected to the net.  In the 
August Red Hat release, the log shows a message about detecting 
"Receiver lock-up bug"
and enables the workaround that exists in the code (even in test10) but
my kernel fails to detect the problem, so the workaround doesn't get
enabled, and my eth0 ends up non-functional as a result.  Have you seen
or heard of this?

Lexington, MA 02421           you could see it a lot better.
