    Subjectboot failure with kernel 2.4.2. please help.

    I have kernel 2.2.16 installed on my machine and trying to upgrade to
    2.4.2. Verified from 2.4.2 Documentation that I have different utilities
    (gcc, binutils, pppd etc) of the specified or the greater version.
    I am able to make bzImage for 2.4.2, but when I try to boot with
    2.4.2 option in lilo, the message is :
    Uncompressing the kernel.... Ok. Booting the kernel

    and the machine hangs !

    The configuration is mostly default (except for SCSI not needed, so
    made off, soundcard off, USB off).
    On getting few hints from mailing list discussions, I did make sure that
    processor type is set correctly (and not default pentium-2/3) in .config
    file and also tried changing '-oformat' option to '--oformat' in Makefile.
    But still the machine fails to boot with 2.4.2

    I am new to kernel area.
    Requesting all of you hints for diagnosing / correcting the problem.

    thanx & regards,
    Narendra Joshi
