So I just returned from a wekk long work trip, during which I had shut
everything down at home, including the UPS which powers my Soekris 4521.
Turning everything back on, with ethernet cables disconnected, I get the

Noticeably, the CF device is not appearing. I have never configured my
system for PXE boot. Lately I've been using monowall. I swapped in another

Any troubleshooting advice? I don't pay much attention to my
Soekris--usually, it sits happily in its corner and Just Works. If this is a
hardware problem, does Soren even take these back for repair? I don't see
any mention of this sort of thing on the website.
