I have attached fstab. It has the paritions configured with root =
/dev/dha7 ext3, which is correct. I ran the e2fsck (because it said that
is had been over 12000 days since the last test, due to not resetting the
clock), and it reported no problems, 1.1% fragmentation.
What should I be using instead of devfs?

could this be caused by my PRAM battery being DEAD (is says the year is 1904)
Also, I configured in both EXT2 and EXT3 kernel support...
