ironically, i had a vfat mount in /etc/fstab, but commenting that
out didn't make any difference.

i'm curious *how* it would have made a difference, since from
what i can see, any mounting of vfat filesystems doesn't occur
until later on in the boot process.

very strange.

at this point, i'm trying to clarify how to move over from
/etc/modules.conf to /etc/modprobe.conf cleanly, since that
appears to be the next obvious step with a 2.6.0 kernel.


p.s.  got samba-3.0.0 beta up and verified a simple smbmount.
so far, so good.
