my quest is for a kernel that boots both on the 7200 and the imac. help me

i dug out my old 601 processor and verified that recent samba rsync

only allows a few more lines of text to be printed before the inevitable
hang). does anyone have a patch that will make paul's kernel work on the

without patch: 

Welcome to Linux, kernel 2.2.1
