problems with upgrading to kernel 2.6.9


Hi,
In order to get my wireless (centrino) working I set out to install kernel 2.6.9 on my hp zt3000 (distribution Suse 9.0, kernel 2.4.21). So, I have compiled and rebooted, but I get the blank screen after I select the new kernel in grub. I can think of a few possibilities of what went wrong, but I couldn't figure out.
1. I used gcc3.3 (contrary to advise in Readme to use 2.9.53)
2. I didn't generate a new initrd file (is it necessary?)
3. In grub, I am using the same grub options that I used for my older kernel, namely:
kernel (hd0,6)/boot/2-6-9/bzImage root=/dev/hda7 vga=0x317 splash=silent desktop hdc=ide-scsi hdclun=0 showopts
initrd (hd0,6)/boot/initrd

What can possibly be wrong? Any help is appreciated.
Happy holidays!

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
