Hardware: NEC Versa M300 Laptop
Release: Woody, upgraded to Testing.
2.6.0 stable source from www.kernel.org
.config and kern.log attached.
Compiled 'the Debian way', using make-kpkg.
Stock 2.2.5 works normally.
kernel-image-2.4.22-1-686 works normally. (Installed via apt-get)
The compiled 2.6.0 kernel boots correctly, but when X starts I have no
keyboard or mouse. If I try booting with linux single, I have no
keyboard or mouse.

Take a look at this:
Search for 'Input Layer' - it mentions something about modifying the
source slightly to enable debug output, which may either help you, or
Before all that you might want to try turning ACPI and other features
off at boot time (I think the option for ACPI is something like
'acpi=off' at the kernel boot prompt)
I hope that this helps at least a little.
