sorry, that's rc4 I'm using.

The problem is that something overwrote /dev/null as a regular file,
and the errors leading to boot failure were of the type "bad file
I remounted rw, deleted /dev/null, and recreated it. I can now boot
back into 2.4.
Question remains - is there something about 2.6 on old-world systems?
Is is not safe? Unstable? (I still haven't figured out why I lose
video with 2.6).
(do some config)
I admit to being somewhat confused, this is cleaner but less
informative than the 2.4 build procedure.
BTW depmod give me lots of unresolved symbols, mostly related to sound.
