All I do is:

"make oldconfig; make dep; make clean; make vmlinux; make modules"

I do this for every kernel and every machine I have here, I never
make any modifications to the config except to comment out
"CONFIG_SMP" for my non-SMP machines, which is easily done via

bash# cp arch/sparc64/defconfig .config
bash# {vi,emacs,whatever} .config

Putting a "#" in front of CONFIG_SMP, then running the build command
line I listed above.

Do this and try to get a working 2.4.5 kernel on the blade, then we'll
move on to trying to deal with the display noise.
