ok, this appears to be working a little better. at least I get different

So, it ends the same :P
as I mentioned before, it installs to fla1 before, on the 2.2.x kernel that
I don't have the source for...would this be a problem? Also, I am using
dLILO to boot this kernel. lilo.conf is using /dev/fla1...is that wrong? I
have NFTL support, but no FTL support. I am going to try to make it boot
off of /dev/nftla1 and see what happens. I am not confident it will help
though. thanks for the time!

Argh. Sorry, _disable_ DOC_SINGLE_DRIVER and use doc2001.
The less likely to work alternative is to leave it _enabled_ and use
doc2000. The message above is because it's trying to load the doc2000
driver, because DOC_SINGLE_DRIVER is enabled and the doc2000 option isn't
(only the doc2001 option).
This will be made less complex - the DOC_SINGLE_DRIVER is an attempt to
merge it all into one, but some people still find the doc2001 driver to be
