This may well be a strange error to you, but possibly other people know
what's going on when they see the error message. Could you please post it?

When you switch kernels, you'll have to switch modules too. The modules
are not in the "linux" file, they're in the installation disks. If the
kernel you get with the installation disks (usually called
"bootfloppies") doesn't work, you'll have to create your own bootfloppies

I don't have the time, unfortunately.
