Ok, progress on getting a WORKING kernel to compile, for anyone that
needs it.  I was able to compile the latest 2.4 kernel (2.4.31) and it
seems to be working properly, no network problems, etc.  I used the
kernel source from kernel.org, and MANUALLY applied the
patch-2.4.24-cobalt from http://www.colonel-panic.org/cobalt-mips/.  I
was never able to get it to work before because just running patch
would cause errors, so I went through to see what it was changing, and
just applied them manually (with vi).  There wasn't as much as I
thought, it only took about 20 minutes, after which I tarred up
/usr/src/linux and saved it for future use.  I then compiled the
kernel the non-debian way (make dep; make clean; make vmlinux), and
all went well.

So just letting everyone know, incase there's someone that needs the
info in the future....
