Same error--it says "MESH: host 0 Aborted"

I have a MESH driver for my internal scsi chain. It does recognize the
cdrom (the other device on MESH). and the my jaz drive, which is on the
other chain.

I am using BootX. I couldn't get Boot Variables working again (I have my
root on the first device, which also holds my primary mac partition).

A 2.1.131 kernel does work.
