     I have done this, please see my reply to your other mail. To
     clarify for you the only errors I get are ICRC UDMA errors
     when booting but DragonFly downgrades to PIO4 mode every time.

     The nightly report last night thought I should know

     Preloaded elf kernel "/kernel" at 0xc069000

     I don't know if this is significant ?

       I will probably re-install when these big changes occur and will
       try to figure out how to get a core dump then if it happens

                            All the best,
