Sorry, all I know is that everything works fine on my machine
jidanni2, but not jidanni1, which is a K-7. The problem started in sid
this week. I won't be back on jidanni1 to test until a few days.
The problem is on jidanni1 the root filesystem gets mounted, but the
rest of the filesystems just cause some "not ext2" messages or
something.

(P.S., why if one can see the messages with Shift PgUp, why can't we also
$ cat /.../.../somefile > /root/errmessages #since /var/log is not mounted
so we can save them and send them to you instead of using a pencil?

I mean those messages are in somewhere in Linux's brain, not just only
in the memory bank of the monitor sitting on one's desk, no?)

Anyways, using one version older busybox didn't fix it.
Here's what I use to make lilo.conf and fstab:
