	hmm.. that's odd.  I'm seem to be having a "too big" problem at
somewhere around 5mb.  (a 4mb kernel works, GENERIC doesn't.)  I suppose
I should probably try to narrow that down a bit.  (on a 333mhz imac, 96MB mem)
I vaguely remember someone mentioning they had the same problem, but I didn't
see a resolution.
