SubjectHP Pavilion 8290 HANGS on boot 2.4/2.4-test9

HP Pavilion 8290, PII 400MHz, 256MB hangs on boot 2.4 and 2.4-test9 on RH7.0.
I tried to compile 2.4-test9 on RH 7.0 with gcc versions 2.96-54, 2.96-69,
and with kgcc 1.1.2-40 (egcs-2.91.66) without success.

The first and last message I get is:
"Uncompressing Linux... OK, booting the kernel"

I never get to the start_kernel() function in main.c
I had no problems to get 2.4 (testx) running on IBM 300PL (PIII 500MHz, 192MB).
After running 'make mrproper' and 'make xconfig' I changed only SMP to No.

Can you please tell me how I can print debug information to the console in
arch/i386/boot/compressed/head.s and in arch/i386/kernel/head.S
_without_ impacting the rest of the assembly code?
