Problem with mondorescue 2.2.8 restore

Hi there --

I am trying to do a restore of an image to a workstation that recently had its hard drives replaced due to failure. The replacement drives are SAS types, and did not have any filesystems formatted on them when
they were installed on the workstation. The .iso files total fourteen in number and each are about 650 megabytes. When I insert the first CD into the workstation's DVD/RW drive, the boot sequence commences
but then hangs at the point where the message:

Freeing unused kernel memory: 236k freed
appears on-screen.

I let the system stay in that status for about five minutes before having to reboot the workstation. When an operating system CD is installed into the workstation, it is able to detect the harddrives without any difficulty.

What is going on here, and what can I do to correct it? Thanks.

Several kernel versions ago I had this error on a 500MHz Celeron machine. The 2.4 kernel was trying to do something with ACPI, as I recall, and things just failed with the same error. I ended up forcing apm instead of acpi and, as I recall, that fixed the problem.

Hope this helps, I realize it is a long shot.
