i want to use the kernel 2.4.20 with my slackware 8.0 (gcc and  

I have donwloaded the source for that kernel and unpack it. After that i  
run the script "checkout".. It connect to the server an installs speakup  
into the kernelsourcen.
 Then i have done the following:

make mrproper
(cp /us/src/2.2.20/.config /usr/src/linux/.config
make oldconfig
make dep
make bzImage

After that i have a new kernel with 950 KB and it is configured as my  
kernel 2.2.20.
I copy the kernel onto my DOS-hd and reboot the system.
If i try to start the new kernel via loadlin, the system crashes and  
reboots. My synthezier (APOLLO II) does not say anything.

Any idea, what i can do?
Can i use the cvs speakup with kernel 2.4.20 or only with 2.4.19?
