This is booting with /vmlinux root=/dev/sdb.
I'm at work at the moment, so I'm not in front of the Indy. I didn't
transcribe the rest, but as I recall, hard drive model and size are
reported (correctly) for sda and sdb, followed by a line with Dave
Miller's address. The three lines I did write out came next.
My previous two boot attempts got hung up before the network detection,
seemingly because of the floptical and CD drives. I yanked out the
first and switched off the second.
Should I be doing something to partition sdb?
