Question booting from usb zip drive


I'm using a ramdisk w/kernel 2.4.20 to boot into a usb zip drive. Once I get finished booting though, there are 2 suspicious processes that never die and one of them is continuously writing to the syslogs filling up the disk. I am able to mount this usb drive from another debian install and none of these problems occur. Here's my output,
