2.1.8: Kernel Panic upon IDE Drive Mount

I am a very minor-league kernel person. Sorry.

2.1.8 on my Gateway P5-75 builds beautifully, but won't boot. Things go along
just fine until where the fsck would normally occur; the kernel panics at that
point and nothing in written to any of the log files, rather obviously.

Pretty much standard IDE configuration; 2 drives + ATAPI CDROM.
