Hey 8363 (and all!),
I've been trying to compile my own kernel from my Unbuntu box, following the instructions from the NetVista-HOWTO.html and your guidance. I read that you built your system on a Debian machine - and Unbuntu is based on that, so I thought it would be relatively easy. I've compiled a 2.4.21 kernel + listed patches, without errors, and set the 8363 to boot via NFS.
However, my 02-updated PBOM on my N2200-8363 begins to load the kernel - then hangs with the IBM load screen becoming distorted from the top of the screen.
How do you (or did you) error check your kernel when you were building it? By that, I'm presuming you had some build errors or non-working kernel builds during your time spent developing your build: How did you check these to find out where the failure was?
Oh, and I wasn't sure if I should post to the DSL forum or the berlios one - hope I made the right choice!
All the best!
