I'm running on a 4MB system.  I'm also using 2.5.6 (I think).  I find
that I get very strange results.  I managet to get a bootable kernel
ever other compile or so.  Problems ranged from a blank gray screen,
to init dying from a trapsignal, to the latest version where init just
dies.  The only soution I can suggest is don't compile with -O2, and
if a kernel fails, delete all the .o files and try again.  I fand that
after re-compiling the whole thing, the kernel will sometimes work.

BTW, I do run mkdep on a kernel before I start compiling.  I'm getting
the impression that mkdep may just be broken.
