In case it helps, I've tried again to boot this faulty kernel today, and
I've received a message like "EBDA too big, overlapping LILO second
stage" or something like that.

Just like Walter I use LILO and all my partitions are XFS (a single one
in fact on this particular laptop)

Since using GRUB with XFS partitions has left a bitter taste in my mouth
a few years back, I'm not really sure if this is a LILO or kernel
problem, nor how to fix it...
