    SubjectRE: Kernel compile problem after reboot
    Yes, I did do a 'cp bzImage /boot/vzlinuz-2.4.17'
    I tried the:
    cp bzImage /dev/fd0 && rdev /dev/fd0 /dev/hda5
    to no success. It does the same thing as before, just slower since it's
    from a floppy (reboots the machine). This time I did configure the kernel a
    bit and recompile with still no success. If you have anymore options or
    suggestions, please feel free to pass them on.
    Here's my machine setup since you asked:

    Intel 233
    192 meg Ram
    10 gb Maxtor HDD (partitioned as hda1:/boot hda5:/ hda?:/swap)
    Intel chipset (PCIset)

    Here's my lilo.conf file:

    boot = /dev/hda
    message = /boot/boot_message.txt
    timeout = 1200

    vga = normal

    image = /vmlinuz
    root = /dev/hda5
    label = Linux
    image = /vmlinuz-2.4.17
    root = /dev/hda5
    label = Linux-2.4.17

    It's got to be my configuration or lilo setup (I think) because I can
    install Slackware,Redhat and others on it just fine with their default
    setup. Anyways, please pass on any info you think might help.

    do configure the kernel! Do not use defaults!

    when you did cp bzImage to /boot
    I hope you did cp bzImage /boot/vzlinuz-2.4.17

    then try this cp bzImage /dev/fd0
    rdev /dev/fd0 /dev/hda5

    try to boot from floppy

    if that is ok , reconfigure kernel try to boot it.
    If it still don't boot perhaps your bios can't reach kernel
    for some reason.

    if still don't work post description on
    what hardware / disk ?
