Re: ACPI and Linksys 10/100 PC Card (ed1)

    If the CD boots up ok and installs everything, but rebooting from the
    HD does not work, then it's got to be cockpit trouble somewhere.

    Possibilities include:  The BIOS IDE disk block translation mode,
    setting (or not setting) 'packet mode' in the boot code, and/or the
    kernel getting confused about the root filesystem.

    One thing that might help would be to 'boot -a' (hit '6' from the 
    DragonFly menu to drop into a boot prompt and type 'boot -a').  This
    tells the kernel to ask for the name of the root filesystem rather
    then trying to automount it, to see if the kernel actually gets that

:Hi all,
:I found the same problem on my Acer Travelmate 250.  Unfortunate this is 
:  my first BSD install, so I am not sure how to debug this.  Any ideas?
