I'll see if I can dig up a refernce to it, but as best I recall those
infinitely repeating numbers are an error code LILO is getting. If you
could capture the first few characters you would probbaly see some portion
of LILO (I *think* it was "LI" the time I had something munged up).
In the meantime, maybe you could tell us a little bit about the
configuration. You've got rather too many pieces there for guesswork to do
much good. :-) Things like what device are you booting off of, and what
partition is the kernel image on, and so forth.
[haven't found anything useful about the repeating LILO errors yet]
C makes an art of confusing pointers with arrays and strings, which
leads to lotsa neat pointer tricks; APL mistakes everything for an array,
leading to neat one-liners; and Perl confuses everything period,
making each line a joyous adventure <wink>. -- Tim Peters
