   Thanks for the file. It seems to crash after it gets started
with an illegal instruction exception. This is just as it's
starting to check the partitions. Here's my setup:

- Place all files from you into a directory. I noticed that TOS managed
  to truncate names. Don't know how/if this will affect anything.
  Kernel version was 2.185, right?
- Copy in ataboot.ttp (3.1) and/or bootstra.ttp from latest Debian
  into that same directory. Both seem to work about the same.
- Re-boot with TK507, XBOOT, and XCONTROL only
- From TOS partition, lauch ataboot.ttp (3.1) or bootstra.ttp
- Seems to boot kernel OK
- Network stuff seems to be set up OK, as does fd0.
- Crash with illegal instruction excetpion. Latest printout is
  that it was checking out hda.

If you (or anyone) needs to see the stack/register dump, I can
hand-copy it in.
