Okay, I screwed up. Obviously I haven't had much sleep lately.
In the end it _was_ the new code that made me feel soooo happy
today. So another sorry goes to Alan for blaming 2.4.20-pre4-ac2.
What a fine example of hasty reporting I've managed to display. :)

Let's revise, though:

$ tar xzf linux-2.4.19.tgz
$ mv linux-2.4.19 linux-2.4.20-pre4-ac2-newide
$ cd linux-2.4.20-pre4-ac2-newide
$ zcat ../patch-2.4.20-pre4.gz ../patch-2.4.20-pre4-ac2.gz \
../2.4.20-pre4-ac2-newide.gz| patch -sp1
$ vi Makefile
$ cp /tmp/.config .
$ make oldconfig dep clean bzImage modules


Proceed to boot with 'init=/bin/bash ro':
