You may have a point.  Richard how many IDE disks do you have?

I guess I am wondering if it looks like the correct disk
is being checked.  

I still favor the partition is to late on the disk theory but, not checking
the CF works as well.

For a pure test case it is possible to just dd the ELF image onto the start
of the disk.  If you don't need partitions.  That is the way Ron is currently
using the code.
