The boot problems I believe were caused by "kernel building under the
influence of sleep deprivation". I rebuilt and things are working fine.

I have added extra SCSI and kernel debugging to try and track down the
issues with the burner software. (It has been pretty stable up until now.
At least it is not burning weird hallucinatory things to disc, like one of
the previous version did. Just glad I found out before burning backups.)

Sorry for the non-error and even more worthless bug report. (I need more

However, the compile problem with 2.4.5-ac9 seems real enough. The link
problems do not go away until I build in the joystick drivers into the
kernel. (Building them as modules did not work, but may have been a
mismatch between the joystick support built in to the kernel and the
drivers built as modules.)
