Writing in to give more details - I do have the CONFIG_BLK_DEV_IDE_PMAC_ATA100FIRST set in the kernel, and hda is still showing up as hda. I also do not see any lines in the boot reporting that the hard drive has been detected (though they scroll by pretty quickly and it's hard to tell - is there a way to see what the dmesg was for a kernel that didn't finish booting due to a kernel panic?) The panic is the famous "Cannot open root device "hda8" or unknown-block(0,0)". Well, the cdrom doesn't have an hda8 of course, so this isn't surprising. What I'm attempting to discover is what I am missing in the kernel config to get my hard drive correctly supported. Further suggestions?
