    SubjectRe: computer reboots before "Uncompressing Linux..." with 2.5.19-xfs
    I had the exact same problem and few were able to help.  However, here's what 
    I found was _my_ problem. I wasn't enabling the x86 options in the kernel
    (duh!). Make sure that when you compile, you enable "Intel IA32 CPU
    Microcode Support" and "Model Specific Register Support". What I ended up
    doing was taking a stock RedHat .config file for i386 and looking at what
    they did for their options and started to delete things from there that I
    don't use or need. Eventually, I just learned what was necessary for a basic
    i386 kernel. Although I was compiling for 2.4.17 kernel. Good luck, hope
    this was of some help.
