OK, now I'm ready to compile my own 2.4.x kernel. I have all the needed
stuff, and allready have compile a standard 2.4.5 which boot correctly
on the Ultra, but hang on the Blade (certainly a wrong choice for the
Video Card) when starting X.

Can you send to me which test I can make ? (and eventualy the .config you
use for generate the "standard" distributed kernel image).

Also, if I need to apply some patchs, just let me know.

Thanks in advance.
