Okay. I've tried booting with a monitor & keyboard attached. This is
MILO 2.0.12 by the way, and come to think of it the old kernel I was using
(2.0.24+axpdiffs) was ELF as well, I think.

Anyway, MILO loads, does its stuff, says "switching on virtual addressing
and jumping to the Linux kernel", and that's the last thing I see. The
keyboard LEDs flash and then the machine locks up hard and I have to cycle
power to get it back.

Any ideas?
