lkab 2.2.18 kernel doesn't boot for me - it appears to become upset at
not having drives on the internal IDE interface, and does't respond to
the normal ide0=0 parameters, evetually panicking because it can't find
the root partition, even though the location is adjusted in the boot

Unfortunately, I still can't build my own 2.2.18 kernel, still suffering
errors about headers being too big from ld which a few people have seen.

I have just checked in case any packages have been updated since last
time I saw this problem.  All I can add to this dicussion is that I
certainly do get the failure in 2.2.16-rmk3 (consistently, but not on
all compilcations), but not under either 2.4 kernel I've tried.  And of
course the mystery error from inetd.
