Presumably you don't see "Going multiuser...". It might help to add this at the end of rc.S
I added the "End of rc.S" to the end of the rc.S file and then
"Beginning of rc.M" to the rc.M file. Now when the system boots up,
it goes to display "End of rc.S" and just stays there.
Since everything above the 'Beginning of rc.M' line are comments,
therefore, it isn't going directly to the rc.M right after rc.S.
So I'm pretty much stumped. Just wondering. Is it normal to have
devpts mounted to /dev/pts?
Now that I've setup a backup Internet route, I can take my time
to figure this problem out while having the ability to go online.
After looking at it boot to 2.4.32 with no problems, I noticed
that in the 2.4.32 bootup sequence, right after the 'End of rc.S',
it goes to "INIT: runtime 3" (or something like that.. I mistakenly
changed the terminal and now cannot page up to see the message.)
Then it displays "Beginning of rc.M". So between rc.S and rc.M,
something else is running (or is being executed).
