uhh.....is this correct?
came off comments section of Kernel-HOWTO
the ´linux´folder is not a real folder its just a symbolic link,and you must rename your source folder that you get after untaring your kernel,rename it from linux to linux-x.x.x replace x with the version of kernel. the delete the 'linux' folder in the /usr/src and copy your new linux-x.x.x folder to yoru /usr/src then use 'ln -sv linux-x.x.x linux' (note* this works under Redhat i cant say how other distros work) THIS INFO is left out in all the howtos ive read so far!!!!
Your talking about no text scrolling up the sceen when you boot with the new kernel?.....you need to check that you compiled VGA text console support and video mode selection support (for the vga= in lilo.conf) into your shiny new kernel
