I have the same problem (bus error) so we know it's not a hardware problem.
It is a time consuming process to create and modify this file system. Would it
possible to create a rootdisk ala Slackware with a minimal system and a few
on it? If we could fdisk, mount, tar, gunzip, etc it would be very handy for
purposes. I've read the bootdisk HOWTO but before I do this, has anyone else
this path? I've not been successful in compiling a kernel with ramdisk support.

Which package is mount in? The filesystem got more stable after I installed
the mips.rpms, but then I installed some more and it got worse.
