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?
