Sparc20 and kernel 2.4.7: problem to boot

Hi all,

I found an old Sun Sparc20 station with dual processor, 64Mb of mem and 2
disk of 1Gb.
I successfully install the last Debian "potato (r3)".

As it is a dual processor, I would like to test kernel 2.4 with
multi-processor support.
I first try to boot with unstable package
"kernel-image-2.4.7-sun4u_14_sparc.deb" (and update libc6 and modutils).
But SILO failed to load kernel: "decompressing error, uncompress image too
long, wouldn't fir into destination".

Being newbee on Sparc Linux, all advises will be well come.
