Hello..

I'm being bitten by the post-2.2.14-including-2.4.0-does-not-boot syndrome.

Everything I've triend, even the pre-compiled kernels from Simple Linux
don't work, except for th 2.2.14 kernels. (and the earlier 2.2 kernels I
compiled around christmastime last year, when I had time to work on this
before.)

It's in indigo2, R4400 - 200Mhz, XZ graphics (but tried with the cards
pulled to no avail).  Most kernels just print the numbers right after you
type boot and the nothing else.  But if you boot with 2.2.14, then it boots
just fine.
I'm enclosing a boot log of the 2.2.14 boot to show what prom and arcs
version I'm running.. maybe they're provide some clues?
