Question Kernel recompile problem in Slack 8

It seems like every time I complie a new kernel (which I've done many times before) in Slack, when I try to boot that kernel the machine starts, shows about 10 dots and then stops and reboots. This is driving me nuts! I am using the 2.4.5 kernel now and just compiled the 2.4.18 with no luck. Can anyone please tell me why this is happening? The steps I'm using are the normal ones, make dep, make clean make bzimage, make bzlilo. I could really use some help here.

make menuconfig
make dep
make bzImage
make modules
make modules_install
make bzlilo

That should be the way you wanna do it. Get rid of make clean and make sure when you are configuring the kernel that you are reading the help files to make sure you aren't compiling something like the filesystem as a module and what not. SHIFT+? on any option shows the options info and dependancies.
