Here's another one, trying again with a different drive and the slow
CD-ROM in the serving computer switched out:

a trace gets:

This is a 2.0.1 kernel.BOOTP this time.  I think the system has 1 stick of
hardwired RAM and one removable; I'll try taking out the removable RAM and
see what happens, in case bad RAM is the culprit.
