2.1.8 panics for me at boot time. It detects my hda drive, but later
at the partition check it complains something like
hda: no device for 3:6
This is not the exact error message, but it's probably very close.

My hardware:
IBM ThinkPad 755CX (75MHz Pentium) with 40MB RAM and 540MB
IDE harddisk. 2.1.7 works fine.
