Subject2.5.x freezes on booting

I've rechecked my procedures, have gone through the archive without result.

I compiled 2.4.19 and 2.4.20 (which I'm using right now) without problem, but
2.5.x is, so far, winning over me.

First was 2.5.59, then 2.5.60 and now 2.5.61. With all them, the same
scenario: make modules and modules_install go without errors; after copying and bzImage and creating initrd, I reboot and get six lines of
kernel (hd0,8) /boot/vmlinuz-2.5.61 root=/dev/hda9
devfs=mount hdc=ide-scsi vga=0x0f05
[Linux-bzImage, setup=0xc00, size=0xa4828]
initrd (hd0,8) /boot/initrd-2.5.61-img
[Linux-initrd @ 0xf7da000, 0x5717 bytes]
Uncompressing Linux ... Ok, booting the kernel
and the system is frozen; nothing runs, no chance for Ctrl-Alt-Del.

Why 2.4.x works well, and 2.5.x, with the same compling technique, on the same
hardware, doesn't?

This is a 1.3GHz Duron, one 20GB HD running Mandrake-9.0. No SCSI, USB or any
fancy additive or appendage (simply because I can't afford them!)

Any word of wisdom will be greatly appreciated. Please CC to me, as I am not
on the kernel list.
