Subject2.4 broken on 486SX
Hello all,

I've tried many versions of 2.4 kernels on a 486SX that I have, and none of them will boot. When trying to boot, I see 'Loading...............' with the dots continuing to appear. Finally, the expected carriage return, and bam the system is dead. The box doesn't even make it to 'Uncompressing Linux...'. What I'm wondering, is how on earth am I supposed to figure out what is going on and fix it? I've tried booting both with loadlin and directly off a floppy, both produce the same result. The machine has 16M of RAM. I do not know offhand the make of the CPU.
