Wonderful :-))
Could you send me both kernel-image packages ? [1]
I just build a 2.2.0 test kernel but I'm not sure of the options I chosen and
I don't have time to rebuild a new one right now.
Just to be sure: don't forget to enable NFSROOT, BOOTP, RARP, LOOP, ISOFS,

Thanks in advance.

[1] either send me an ftp address or upload them to my ftp site

[2] limit your kernel size to no greater than 1.5MB uncompressed.
    I was not able to load an initial ramdisk using a 1.6MB kernel because it
	is destroyed by kernel memory allocations at starting time (due to the
	method silo is using to load initrd in memory).
