isn´t this funny? Doing it like described above it works (has to be
"menuconfig" by the way)! The last kernel I build myself was a 2.4.x where
I was used to run:
make xconfig/menuconfig
make dep
make modules
make modules install
and finally make zImage/bzImage

What´s the difference in runnning make bzImage directly? And what causes
my machine to crash, when I do it the wrong way (is it a bug?)?
The only thing I changed in menuconfig the second time was switching from
"pentium pro" to "athlon" architecture. Could this be harmful?

Thank´s & Regards,
