I try to compile my own kernel for my Indy.
I got the sources from cvs yesterday and made 

 make config
 make dep
 make clean
 make vmlinux

It compiles fine but it will not boot. I get the following message:

>> boot vmlinux

I used the Indy running Linux 2.1.121 from
and egcs-1.0.2 from hardhat and also my i586 with the crosscompiler
from with the same results.
The vmlinux-indy-2.1.121.tar.gz boots fine.

What am I doing wrong?
