Subject:   What does "PID 5 (sh), UID 0: exited on signal 8" mean when booting from a fixit floppy?

I am trying to use the repair floppy generated by the script in section 9.3.8 of
the handbook. I created the mini kernel included in the script as well.

I am running 2.2.7 on a Dell 486P/25 with 16mb of RAM.

Here is what happens when I boot off of the floppy:

Boot: 0:fd(0,a)kernel -s
.
.
.
stuff deleted
.
.
Changing root device to fd0s4c
Enter full pathname of shell or RETURN for /bin/sh: [return]
PID 5 PID 5 (sh), UID 0: exited on signal 8
Sep 6 09:11:33 init: single user shell terminated, restarting
Enter full pathname of shell or RETURN for /bin/sh:

When I boot in multi user mode I get a slightly different error.

Sep 6 010:19:36 init: login get_class: unknown class `daemon`
Sep 6 010:19:48 init: init /bin/sh on /etc/rc terminated abnormally, going to
single user mode
Enter full pathname of shell or RETURN for /bin/sh: [return]
PID 5 PID 5 (sh), UID 0: exited on 8
Sep 6 09:30:10 init: single user shell terminated, restarting
Enter full pathname of shell or RETURN for /bin/sh: [return]
PID 5 PID 6 (sh), UID 0: exited on 8

If I boot off the hard disk and mount the floppy I can execute the shell
[/mnt/bin/sh] successfully.

If I install the mini kernal on my hard disk and boot it I get the same errors
as above.

Here is the kernel config I am using:

Any help much appreciated.
