No, I'll try that next.

Ah, OK, that makes sense. I built 2.6.10,, and
with exactly that configuration and placed all modules in the initrd,
which didn't work (the usual complaint about /dev/rd/0). I even tried
using the initrd from the d-i 2.6 directory just in case the bit
initrd caused the problem -- that didn't make a difference, so it's
quite certainly the kernel.

What else can I try?

That's what I'm suspecting.

Great, thanks.
