Using the powerpc development tree of Linux 2.4, I am trying to boot my
system from CompactFlash using Xilinx SystemACE. My compact flash card
has two partitions, a 16MB FAT16 that holds the combination FPGA image /
Linux Kernel ELF file, and an Ext2 partition that holds the root file
system. The system starts the boot process, uncompresses the Linux
kernel and begins loading drivers. Part way into this process, it
conducts a partition check of the drive being reported to it by
SystemACE, however, it hangs at that point. No kernel panic, no error
message, it simply hangs. Here is the output at that point...

Partition check:
what I am trying to find out is if this problem has been seen/fixed in
the past? or did I format the CF card incorrectly?
