Ok I just tried some other mods... the first was to hard-wire disk0 to
be bios device 0x8b.  no-go.  The second was to patch to 'continue' if it
missed a probe, and to limit the probe to the first 0x10 entries... for
example: 0x00-0x0f and 0x80-0x8f.  

How is it that the old boot code works?  What is it doing differently, is
0x8b perhaps not the "real" bios boot device unit?
