Ah, *dang*. Thanks. Right on target. I got quite a few error messages there:

[start snip]

Apr 6 14:53:44 localhost kernel: Filesystem panic (dev 08:01).
Apr 6 14:53:44 localhost kernel: FAT error
Apr 6 14:53:44 localhost kernel: File system has been set read-only
Apr 6 14:53:44 localhost kernel: Directory 5515: bad FAT
Apr 6 14:54:08 localhost kernel: 8:01: rw=0, want=1182836230, limit=19535008
Apr 6 14:54:08 localhost kernel: attempt to access beyond end of device
Apr 6 14:54:08 localhost kernel: 08:01: rw=0, want=1182836230,
limit=19535008
Apr 6 14:54:08 localhost kernel: attempt to access beyond end of device

[end of snip]

... and my various new attempts showed new errors in the same style, only
mentioning different directory numbers (whatever they mean).

Does anyone know what the 'want' and 'limit' parameters mean?
