Thank you everyone who responded.
The error
Short read.
0x2000 chars read. Disk read error
was because my root partition is 3.5gigs and should be no larger than 2gigs
with PROM 2.22. As I said earlier and to many peoples amazement, the system
runs fine even with the error.
df -k / shows the correct size and I have it at 93% and have no problems.

Thanks again everyone
