Since posting my last message about kernel re-compilation I've booted again
with the same result as previously. However, this time I hit the Control
key to shut SpeakUp up a little and found that I got some warnings like
"/boot/system map contains an incorrect kernel version" - I imagine that
this means I need to tweak something somewhere in order to reflect the fact
that "uname -r" now reports 2.2.14 instead of my old 2.2.12. I might be
missing punctuation in the message, so don't treat it as verbatim. My linux
image statement in lilo.conf is /vmlinuz and, obviously this file exists at
root (I checked, honest).
Could this account for my i586 errors, which come up later after the speech
I'm going to try a "make config" tomorrow when my helper is around again,
but if anybody has any ideas in the meantime I'd love to hear them.

Oh I should read your messages more thoroughly. The config settings are
stored in /usr/src/linux/.config, assuming you compiled from
/usr/src/linux. This file is generated by the make config process and is
what make oldconfig refferences.
