Using the pre-compiled 2.1.99 from Linus (thanks, Alex) here are my
results.  The drive is (and was) partitioned as option drive, and I
re-ran Installer.  Entering 'boot /vmlinux root=/dev/sdb' I get this:

[snip]

Transaction block size = 512


However, with 'boot /vmlinux root=/dev/sdb1' I get this:

WARNING: Your /etc/fstab does not contain the fsck passno
        field.  I will kludge around things for you, but you
        should fix your /etc/fstab file as soon as you can.

Parallelizing fsck version 1.10 (24-Apr-97)
[/sbin/fsck.ext2] fsck.ext2 -a /

..and then nothing.  But the main reason I believe that the SGI/Linux
project is not dead is that, for the first time, the kernel made my
hard drive chatter at me before giving up the ghost.

Who knows what I should do next?
