I haven't read the whole thread. Are you really going to compile linux
on a slug? Do you have a fatslug? Please note this will definitely take
ages and might abort due to low memory.

lilo and grub are for x86 and no good for arm. The slug boots its kernel
and ramdisk from flash rom. The trick is to use the program
"flash-kernel". This is probably done automatically if you use make-kpkg
to build a kernel .deb and install that. Make sure by watching the
postinst messages and looking for a line that says something like
"kernel and ramdisk sucessfully flashed". r elase just invoke that
program manually after installing the new kernel.

Just make a backup of the flash contents before and copy that to another
machine. If the new kernel refuses to boot, you can upslug your backup.
