I would start here:


Then take the config from the 2.6.8-2 kernel you are currently running
and use that for the "oldconfig" step.  Then, go in there and change the
HIGHMEM support options.  I am guessing that your machine currently runs
well with the 2.6.8 kernel.  If so, no sense in upsetting the balance.
