First of all; thanks to everyone that replied, some of you hit the nail on
the spot, but as quite a few didn't I thought the solution might be of some
public interrest.

Anyway; the only thing that had to be done was to compile the kernel as ELF.
This choice was marked no by default, and there was no reference as I could
find that warned against non-elfing the 1.3.11 kernel with gcc 2.7.0. I guess
Linus would save non-gurus a lot of bother by noting it in the README, or
making the option 'yes' by default.

Again; thanks to those who pointed out the error of my ways.
