So far, great.  The only minor gotcha is that the kernel is compiled
with frame buffering; your X installation may die.  The fix for that
is to do the following steps:

1.  "cd /usr/src/linux"
2.  "make oldconfig"
3.  edit .config, look for "CONFIG_FB=y", change the 'y' to 'n'.
4.  "make oldconfig"
5.  "make dep"
6.  "make clean"
7.  "make bzImage"
8.  "make modules"
9.  "make modules_install"
10. "cd arch/i368/boot"
11. "cp bzImage /boot/vmlinuz-2.2.15-2.5.0" 
12. "lilo"
13. "shutdown -r now"

enjoy...
