Current benh-kernel fails to boot (after clock) on iBook G4



Hello,
I am new to PPC, so please excuse if these are FAQs, but I searched
the archive and could not find the answers. I use a new iBook G4.

I got the latest benh-kernel by rsync and build the kernel using
make-kpkg. As described in the archive, I had to touch
arch/ppc/boot/images/vmlinux.coff and
arch/ppc/boot/images/vmlinux.coff-2.4.25-ben1
(I used http://lists.debian.org/debian-powerpc/2004/04/msg00305.html).
After installing, I have the following files in /boot:

-rw-r--r--    1 root     root      2095032 2004-04-14 16:26 vmlinux.coff-2.4.25-powerpc


Is this normal? (i.e. vmlinux AND an empty vmlinux.coff-2.4.25-ben1 ??). 

I made a bug-report about the build-problem: #247850

I boot the kernel, and it stops at:
VFS: Mounted root (ext3 filesystem) readonly.
Freeing unused kernel memory: 172k init 4k chrp 8k prep
INIT: version 2.85 booting
Loading /etc/console/boottime.kmap.gz
Activating swap.

EXT3 FS 2.4-0.9.19, 19 August 2002 on ide0(3,4), internal journal

The kernel supplied by Debian shows at this part:
VFS: Mounted root (ext3 filesystem) readonly.
Freeing unused kernel memory: 208k init 8k chrp 36k prep
INIT: version 2.85 booting
Loading /etc/console/boottime.kmap.gz

then it detects the logical volumes, complains about the CD-ROM (some
Illegal request).

I can post my complete .config or other information if needed. Thanks
for pointers to fine manuals or hints where to look at.
