If these strange things go away this way, I agree with you.

Hmm, in the meantime image points to /boot/vmlinux-2.2.15. Is there anything I
can do to find out if the kernel is "suitable"?
The state of the system is as it is from the Debian dh_bootstrap installation
routine (and I installed arround a dozen of i386 debians).
Would it help if I email it to you (ftp out works before I reboot the machine)?
Would it help if I email something else ?
Or tar the complete system and make it available for download?
