Can you be a bit more specific?  No option by that name exist, maybe
you mean --read-only?  What document are you refering too?

As you see, there are to many questions left to be able to answer your
question, please try to be me more precises in the future.

I had a "--readonly" option in my menu.lst file like this (to work around a bug that seems to have gone away):

module /hurd/ext2fs.static --readonly \

And removing the "--readonly" let me boot correctly.

I think this is what was happening:
1. The console server looked for /dev/console
2. /dev was empty
3. The console server tried to write to /tmp/console
4. (3) failed due to "--readonly", causing the system to crash

Thanks to both of you for the help. =)
