Hi Fernando,
   At this point I've already gone back and rebuilt the machine from
scratch. It's no big deal to do that, so I did.

   For the record, if you do an apt-get dist-upgrade before doing the
rpm -Uvh kernel-2.4.19.ll step, then when you do try to install the
kernel you get 100's of messages about things being out of sync. Mostly
it looks like driver files and other things like that. All object files
and how they mismatch the kernel, so it then won't load the new kernel

   Anyway, it's no big deal really. I understood what I'd done wrong,
and it was only 45 minutes more just to rebuild it.
