built new kernel - hangs during boot

I am running Red Hat 7.3.  I built a new kernel from /usr/src/linux-2.4
source tree based on the kernel HOWTO.  Then built the initrd copied the
kernel, initrd file and the config file in boot location and upgraded
Grub.conf to boot off of the new load.

When it starts booting, it gets stuck after printing the following
'Freeing unused memory: 264k freed'.

Any pointers please?

No, not scared off, just absorbing all the useful information being 
posted and learning from it.

Many postings ago, someone suggested powering off and re-booting the 
cable modem, the XP, and the Valhalla at the same time, hopefully that 
will result in IP addresses on the same subnet, that alone may clear up 
a few problems.  I'll try that at my earliest convenience (probably in 2

days), then let you all know what ifconfig and ipconfig /all report.

Thanks for all the useful info.
