Ugh, too bad.

Can you email me or the list the .config file you used fro the 2.2.5
based build you did before?

Is it safe to build it on a potato system?  I would guess not....

*sigh* It's very difficult for me to build a new boot-floppies since
my link right now is so slow (28.8) and I'd need to reinstall slink I
think.  If anyone else wants to step forward, that would be great,
otherwise, I'll make the attempt in a week or so.
