I'm still trying to get my inaugural disk boot to work on my Octane 1. 
I've used Skylark's config file for the kernel build (as I couldn't find 
the official gentoo one, and the default gentoo install kernel doesn't 
seem to work for me anyway), but I get a fairly blunt error, with a few 
magic numbers.

The results of a boot attempt follow:
ARCLoader 0.43(...)
Loading configuration(...)
Loading scsi(0)(...)
Reading 5638216 bytes... OK.
Entering kernel.

NESTED EXCEPTION #1 (vid 0) at EPC: ffffffff9fc6819c; first exception at 
PC: 0


Any suggestions as to the problem, or potential solution? Where should I 
look for further information? Is there additional information I should 
provide? What troubleshooting advice is there? Has anyone else ever seen 

This is a fresh, current Gentoo install...

Thanks for your help,
