I had the same problem on a TP 600.
I rebuilt a zimage kernel much thinner that 640k (so it doesn't need the
A20 coomand) and also a drive disc with PCMCIA, to get the network
available iimmediately.

You can find the two images in

For your security, these are the md5sums:

df950b31aa7a121c2432ec60bc2fdd7a  drv1440tp600.bin
c1bac9a0acf742b0d9ecc31946656fbe  resc1440tp600.bin
