2.1.72 boot incomplete

I'm having real problems with the 2.1.72 kernel. I can't seem to get it
to boot completely. I've got a Tyan Tomcat IV with 2 P75's and 48MbRAM,.
I compiled the 2.1.72 kernel with the same setup as I have for 2.1.66
which is the last kernel that worked flawlessly for me.

I get past the hardware detection stage and to the point where the CDROM
is mounted. It seems that now that the unified CDROM driver is being used
I can't get past the mount stage unless there is a CDROM in the drive..
otherwise I get hundreds of messages scrolling by saying that the drive
"is not ready". When I get past that, and to the point where the random
seed is being generated, it just hangs there and does not ever finish

Does anyone else have experience with this?
