Thanks to Hannah and Niklas, the 2.5 system I was having problems with
is now up and running with a snapshot from 19990819.

The problem was in the new ATAPI-SCSI code which numbered my ATAPI zip
disk as sd0, where I had originally installed /.  Once I re-did my
/etc/fstab for the new drive number and booted with the new kernel,
things were back to 'normal'. :)

I was already planning on a custom kernel, and now I'll incorporate
Hannah's suggestions to fix my SCSI IDs to specific devices.

I don't want to use the boot.conf method at the momemnt since that
doesn't give me access to the "boot>" prompt, but skips right over
it (by design).  Having a boot.conf is attractive, however, as it
reduces some concerns about 'easy' physical security issues (sans
boot disk).

Thanks again.
