Thanks. I looked through .config and made sure that ext2 file system
and SCSI is compiled into kernel and recompiled. Problem still
remains. I rebooted it several time, it seems the very last three
lines shown is

......IRQ 10......
......IRQ 11......
......IRQ 12......

before the screen goes to blank. Any more thoughts?
