Done, compiled, and installed.  I'm a little worried here though:

./mkelfImage --kernel=/tftpboot/bzImage

When I do a 'file' on the new image, I see:

/tftpbot/vmlinuz-2.tyan: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version
1 (SYSV), statically linked, corrupted section header size

This image (bzImage) is an Opteron compiled kernel, which should be 64
bit, unless there's no real difference in the elf header.

Sorry if this is sounding pretty whiny - I'm under a lot of pressure to
get this all going :)

BTW - if folks are live and have suggestions, -please- feel free to IM
