I haven't tried to make a boot disk for any versions of the 2.6 kernel.
I assume that the kernel would be pretty basic and not have many
functions/devices enabled.

I was wondering myself why the kernel is modular and cannot at least
load so far, then ask for disk 2 to continue the process.

I believe that the kernel feature for making a boot disk, which is fully
system functional, is what the previous make boot disk used to do.

Have you installed a kernel-2.6-BOOT kernel? Or are you successful
making this disk from a fully featured, all modules loaded kernel.
