(1.5MB? I remember hitting the 1MB wall even after grabbing 1.6c. hmm..)

I went back and double-checked my loadlin version, and it turned out I was
actually using 1.6a due to a fat finger. Version 1.6c booted fine (only
one kernel tested) without Eric's help. 1.6a definitely needs Eric's help
to boot.

(gee, it works. sure hope I don't hit the new lard limit any time soon;)
