AFAIK 8MB is enough to boot linux, or it should be.
As to why Martin is having crashes, I don't know. Try it with a
smaller kernel image size, as Guy suggests, by leaving out options
that you do not strictly need. Also be sure to use the latest
available 2.2.x or 2.4.x kernel and if the crashes persist, read
the ksymoops documentation and the linux-kernel mailing list faq,
and post a decoded oops on that list.
