So, is there something I'm doing wrong?

Not that I spot anything.

This is a perfectly normal (if slow) z/VM development system (yes, it's actually emulated, but for all that, IBM still recognizes Flex boxes as being legitimate s390x machines until the last dongle has expired!). It runs Etch, SLES10, and CentOS
4.4 just fine, and it runs z/VM 5.2 and z/OS 1.9 fine too.

Etch, SLES10 and CentOS 4.4 are much older.

Is there something in newer Linux kernels that requires z9 or later

No. They work fine on z900. Can you try if a new kernel will work at all
on this system?

...maybe. Would installing etchnhalf 2.6.24 probably trigger the bug, if bug it is?

I can reasonably easily install a new etch machine and then attempt an upgrade.
