Cannot mount with .100+

This may have been mentioned in previous posts, although I
am not certain it is the exact same issue. With these newer
kernels, my boot process halts dead with the last statement
being the "mounting local filesystems" just after the fsck tests,
ie. the next step in my rc.sysinit is

mount -a -t nonfs

there are no messages from this command.

The first file system (hdc1) seems to get mounted before the failure
since only that fs is considered not cleanly unmounted on subsequent
boots. My fstab is

# /etc/fstab
/dev/hdc1 / ext2 defaults 1 1
/dev/hda2 /disk2 ext2 defaults 1 1
/dev/hdb /mnt/cdrom iso9660 ro,user,noauto 0 0
/dev/sda4 /mnt/zip vfat rw,user,noauto 0 0
/dev/hda1 /mnt/dos vfat rw 0 0
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy vfat rw,user,noauto 0 0
maya:(pid249) /net ignore 0 0 0
none /proc proc defaults
/dev/hda3 none swap sw

I run RH5 on a Pentium-S 133 with 32Mb. My versions are (I believe)
in line with the Changes file:

insmod version 2.1.85
GNU ld version 2.9.1 (with BFD 2.9.1)
ldd (GNU libc) 2.0.7
procps version 1.12
This is procinfo version 13 (1998-03-07)
mount: mount-2.7l
net-tools 1.45
hostname 1.96 (1996-02-18)
basename (GNU sh-utils) 1.16
/sbin/versions: automount: command not found
Universal NFS Server 2.2beta29
GNU bash, version 1.14.7(1)

If there are other tests I can do to help narrow down the cause of
this situation, please let me know. Since syslogd has not yet
started, I have no other feedback on the nature of this error; .62
logs give the following for the IDE devices:
