Some more details.

If I boot the box, and then do something like this

0[old261]# dd if=/dev/ad0 of=/dev/null bs=64k


It actually completes without error.

The errors seem to happen when I write to the box. e.g. mount -u / ;do
something;mount -u -oro /

on the mount -u -oro /
I will get the odd error.

What exactly does NID_NOT_FOUND mean ?

Also, on the machine that burns the flash, I can read and write to the
CF without error.  However, there are these warning messages
