The 2.5.x series are 'unstable' kernels.
You might want to stick with 2.4.x unless you've got some hardware probs that 2.5.x fixes

you'll have to try a whole bunch of different kernel configs,
and eventually, you'll get something to boot. try removing
all scsi, sound, and stuff you don't have to have to boot,
and that will make your troubleshooting easier, and
recompilation faster. I sometimes use a binary type sort
on stuff like that. get it working, then add back half the
stuff you had before. if that doesn't work remove that
half, and try the other half. it doesn't take too long to get
it down to what doesn't work right.
