That was it. I had upgraded the system, but not done the
"update-initramfs -k all -u" bit.
After doing that in rescue mode, it booted just fine. Thanks :-)

Not a critical item, but it's a lot easier to find a USB stick than a blank
CD media and a working reader nowadays.

Next step - ZFS followed by trying to deboostrap a new install in a ZFS root :-)

Thanks for your help & cordially,
