I think I could exclude the possibility that it's a configuration
problem, since when going back to 2.4.21, I just did a make oldconfig
using my config file from 2.4.22 with no other changes. I am also not
basing my opinion of 2.4.22 on this single machine, since I've tried
installing it on 2 other machines, both of which froze while booting,
and before getting to the login prompt. I remember someone else
reported that same problem on the list a while back, so I know I'm not
the only person who experienced that particular problem.
