I thought I was getting somewhere when I got to the KDE login screen,
but the machine locked up when I tried logging in. During subsequent
reboots the machine stopped in several different places (some listed below):
FATAL: Error inserting thermal
(lib/modules/2.6.18-6-k7/kernel/drivers/acpi/thermal.ko): No such device
Waiting for /dev to be fully populated
SCSI device sdc: 143550456 512-byte hdwr sectors (73498 MB)
So I'm back to running the 486 kernel.
