Hello Hamish:

I tracked it down to the script checkroot.  The command fsck returns 8
(Operational error) while checking the file system (/dev/md0).  I did an
ugly hack just to boot the machine.  I hard coded (retval=0) just to start
the machine and it does.  Now, how do I fix this issue of (fsck /dev/md0)
returning 8 as supposed to 0?

Thanks again,
