Check your /var/log/messages file. The most likely error is that you
didn't enable Socket Filtering in the networking options. You will need
to recompile for this option to work.

The ALSA error is exactly what it says. Previously the ALSA driver was
searching for modules, now that it's compiled into the kernel, there are
no modules.

I would suggest getting a copy of the 2.4.23 kernel, since it contains a
bunch of fixes, without any major differences in the way it's laid out.
