    SubjectRe: Can't boot a 2.6 kernel..
    I'll summarize again for everyone

    getting a prebuilt kernel from http://people.redhat.com/arjanv (2.6.1-1.141smp) and installing it - will not boot.

    picking athlon in 2.6.1, and 2.6.2rc2 - will not boot.

    picking i386 in 2.6.1 and 2.6.2rc2, and making it brain dead - will not boot.

    doing "make allmodconfig" - setting to athlon - will not boot.
    doing "make allyesconfig" - setting to athlon - will not boot.
