I'm pretty good at compiling kernels from sources. I have previously
installed 2.4.x kernels to all Redhat versions 7.3 and higher before
with no problems. I followed the directions here
tools updated to the minimum requirements before compiling. Everything
compiled sucessfully and I did the regular move of System.map and
bzImage to /boot and did the symlinks and added to lilo.conf, lilo -v,
It goes to Loading Linux ........
The next line appears for half a sec then the whole system reboots.
