Could you tell me what kernel version (build date) you used, and where you
downloaded it? Due to the sluggish nature of the Debian FTP updates (and 
me being too lame to jumpt through all these hoops just for a new kernel)
I keep the most recent version of the Mac boot floppies in on the Mac FTP
site (baltimore.wwaves.com) in /pub/MacLinux/debian-support, and new kernels
(without the boot floppy wrapped around them) are in /pub/MacLinux/kernels.

Last time I asked around, the current 2.0.33 kernel worked on all
so maybe you grabbed a obsolete one...
