Okay, that might explain why I couldn't boot to the disk that I updated with
rsync. I just upgraded the OS to the latest 10.4.10 and now all is working

I'm setting up a computer classroom and I'm setting each computer to restore
itself from its master image every night, then shut down to save energy.
Rsync plus cron and a bit of shell scripting is a really powerful
combination. Thanks for your help!
