Mike, you called it...my bad.

I went:

 "make zImage"; "lilo"; "shutdown -r now"

without the "make modules";"make modules_install"

after the kernel build.  (And I did this
more than once during my debug mode.)

As usual, Linux works when you follow the directions.
Modules must be made and installed after *every* kernel

Now I am just working out problems with my "ifconfig tr0..."
configuration, following the NET-3-HOWTO.

Thanks for your help.
