Nope, thats not it.  The console tries (this is the short version) to
open a node in /dev, if it can.  If it cannot then it tries
/tmp/console, which it tries to create if it is not there.


Check if any IRQ's are shared, that the file-system was formated
correctly (fscked and all that).

I know it can't be IRQ sharing, since I can install using the J2 CD's (but the network doesn't work).

I'll try fscking the disk.

Honestly I don't have any idea what is going on. :-)

Thanks, Alfred. =)
