ok. Which Linux works? The SLES 8 installer? RH AS 2.1? Self-built Kernel?

BTW, I've corrected the subject line since SLES 8 kernel for Itanium 2
systems is based on 2.4.19, not 2.4.9.

Original problem report said:

What made you think "mptable" was the problem when the last output
is "loading mptbase"?

Could you determine if the kernel binaries used by the SLES 8 installer
are the same as used on the reboot?
It sounds like they are not and the problem is the ramdisk.
