Date (both 1.7.x and at least 1.8.3 using SuSE 4.4) has a SEVERE bug: if

file and thus every reboot hung immedieately after the

VFS: Mounted root (ext2 filesystem) readonly.

message and things like booting "init=/bin/sh" didn't help either (obviously;)
and locating this "reboot problem" was no fun (was a long distance call for some hours;)

All SCSI disks will from now on ___ _____
be required to send an email notice 0--,| /OOOOOOO\
24 hours prior to complete hardware failure! <_/ / /OOOOOOOOOOO\
