Are you sure it was compiled with the correct CPU? If you configure the
CPU incorrectly (686 when you only have a 586, etc.) the kernel *will*

Maybe we should have the kernel print the CPU information it was
compiled with before it does anything else..... It'll make it easier to
catch what may be a fairly common set of PEBCAK case....
