Interestingly, i reinstalled pr0.9, booted up fine. Then upgraded
mkinitrd to 3.0.6, e2fsprogs to 1.19, and installed the
kernel-smp-2.4.2-SGI_XFS_0.10.i686.rpm from the pr0.10test2. Then
created a new initrd from the 2.4.2-SGI_XFS_0.10smp modules, and this
boots fine! Perhaps there is a problem with the Wolverine installer
creating the initrd...
