Do you know what kind of processor you're using -- AMD K7 or K6/-II/-III?
Install one of the following kernels:
AMD K6: kernel-image-2.4.19-k6
AMD K7: kernel-image-2.4.19-k7
i386 (generic for 386 or 486 machines): kernel-image-2.4.19-386
Pentium (classic): kernel-image-2.4.19-586tsc
Pentium (pro/mmx/II/III/IV) or Celeron: kernel-image-2.4.19-686
'uname -r' should then give, respectivey:
