        Just added the printk's to gnumach.  Read on.

        Actually, I think you have a typo there.  This needs to be
done _before_ the NE2000 device.  For if NE2000 was detected off the
standard gnumach I would never have hit the problem.  So I added the
lines for all the ethernet devices because I distrusted my intuition
and tried your method first and then added the lines before

        Anyways, I configured the kernel with --enable-ide and
--enable-floppy and using the debian/rules file I got all the other
enables and added them all in one massive configure.  I am not putting 
it here.  After make install I rebooted and after detecting the floppy 
drive I got 17 X's.  This means that it crashed at CONFIG_WD80x3
i.e. wd_probe(dev).

        Please let me know if you now need me to do anything more. I
propose to blow away my install and reinstall using the debs next.  I
used the tarball earlier.  I'd like to do this stuff before I

Hope this was useful.
