Remove altivec support from your kernel. That took me to a loading MOL
which would crap out at the first (or second or third, depending on the
phase of the moon) keystroke. I'd blame the various hacks in my kernel
tree but plain 2.2.19 did the same (though I used the same .config
basically, so I blame that now).

Nope, use BenH's or Paulus' rsync trees.

I'd say try 2.4 - 2.2 seems to have hit the end of its useful life for
powerpc. I'd be happy if BenH would correct me on this though :-)
