SL5 and ALIX errors

Here are some errors encountered booting Scientific Linux 5 on an ALIX board.

Please add more errors and fixes.

Boot hangs after initrd

Keith Lofstrom 2009/01/06

The console shows:

 Booting 'Scientific Linux (2.6.18-8.1.3.el5) console'

 root (hd0,0)
  Filesystem type is ext2fs, partition type 0x83
 kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.18-8.1.3.el5 ro root=LABEL=/1 console=ttys0,38400n8
    [Linux-bzImage, setup=0x1e00, size=0x1ad094]
 initrd /initrd-2.6.18-8.1.3.el5.img
    [Linux-initrd @ 0xfe7f000, 0x1707a6 bytes]

Notice that the kernel line shows ttys0 instead of ttyS0. Typo!
