I'd recommend picking up the new binaries from eunet (currently in
incoming) dated 19 Feb. I'm currently building a new set that I'll be
uploading in the next couple of days. There should also be a "generic"
kernel (in incoming) that is from the same date range.

The "720" stuff is pretty ancient....
