Well Mark,

I think that you and I may be the only ones out there. We probably should
just email each other. Hah! I think that I fixed my problem myself. I found
some information at:

I used his/her linload line except that I changed the 'ro' to 'rw' and it
seems to work fine. He/she had a 30MB CF and I have a 64MB, so I need to see
if I can see all 64MB, but it boots fine. Have a good weekend.
