IBM Walnut 405GP. Linux is MontaVista
linuxppc-2.5.405, which looks like a 2.4.2 kernel.

I've searched the archives and either I'm not very
efficient at navigating them, or I couldn't find
anything that helped out.

I did see one post mentioning that you needed a
symbolic link from the hardhat devkit to /. I was a
bit unclear on this and didn't see anything about this
in the mvista cdk documentation. I may have missed it,
anything is possible at this point.

Does anyone have any idea why init is being killed
off? It complains isn't being found? It's
certainly in the ramdisk. I'm sure folks have run into
this before.
