2.1.32 still won't boot

I recently (i.e. about 30 minutes ago) tried upgrading from 2.1.29
to 2.1.32. After I get the "Now booting the kernel." message,
the console stops. I can still hear hard drive movement, and
apparently *something* is happening -- if I let it go on long
enough before I hit reset, the root partitions end up being
marked as non-clean (forcing fsck on the next boot). Nothing
goes to syslog though. It looks like it dies before init gets
run, but I can't be sure.

2.1.31 had the same problem on my machine.

If it matters, I am running on a uniprocessor Pentium-133.
The kernel was compiled for a Pentium, using gcc and
binutils Nothing in my setup has changed since
compiling 2.1.29. I compiled 2.1.32 bare, with no patches.
I can provide additional details on request.
