So the key question is whether it is the precompiled bigendian kernel
from that doesn't work or the one you compiled yourself?

To verify, these are the precompiled 2.4.3 Malta kernels on

-rw-r--r--   1 9618     40        1075193 Jul  6 04:35 
-rw-r--r--   1 9618     40        1107586 Jul  6 04:35 

If the precompiled kernel works and the one you compiled doesn't there
could be something wrong in your compiler setup. We're currently
compiling on Linux/x86 using the precompiled version from:

It reports itself as being:
