I'm currently running kernel 2.2.19 fine, and I'd need to upgrade to 2.4
shortly, but after a careful configuration when i try to boot it hangs just
after the message "Ok, booting kernel .."

As far as i know the problem verifies with each version of the 2.4 kernel,
and i think that it is an hardware problem.

I'm not able to trace the operations because part of the startup code is in
The cpu is a Pentium Celeron 166 with 32Mb of RAM.
If you can address me about what may cause the problem i can be more
detailed about that.

Any hint will be appreciated
