  Hi Eric,

  I guess this is while decompressing the kernel? Place the kernel on a dos
  partition on the beginning of you harddisk (partion of say 5 a 10 Mb
  starting on the first physical cylinders on your disc). The same happened to
  me at one time and this is how I solved it. For all I know this 'feature' 
  should not exist anymore, but it seems it has bitten you...
