Re: more kernel troubles

Doh.  I knew I was forgetting something. ;)  Thanks.

So now that I got serial console working, I know why the system isn't
booting.  Turns out the kernel seems to panic when it tries to start

VFS: Mounted root (ext2 filesystem) readonly.
Freeing unused kernel memory: 80k freed
EXT2-fs error (device ide0(3,1)): ext2_check_page: bad entry in
directory #2: unaligned directory entry - offset=0, inode=46,
rec_len=47, name_len=0
Warning: unable to open an initial console.
Kernel panic: No init found.  Try passing init= option to kernel.

I can boot up the machine with the original kernel (with the bfd
command), and it boots fine, so I don't believe there is a problem
with the hard drive.  The filesystems are fine, too, and run fine
under the other kernel.  What is causing this error?
