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.
