I can send it to you privately if you want. It'll be following this
mail. I don't really remember by heart which version I use... So it's
easier to send it to you. :-)

I doubt it... One thing to check : I have found that MILO does some name
mangling when there are more than one period in the filename. For
example, even though the initrd's filename on the 2005.0 Gentoo LiveCD
is gentoo_2.4.igz, I have to type 'initrd=gentoo_2_4.igz' in my boot
command. Maybe something similar is happening to you? At the MILO
prompt, try doing an 'ls' on your boot partition / directory to see what
MILO sees the filenames as.
Other than that, I don't have any other ideas... Generally, if you use
the filename as seen in an 'ls' from the MILO prompt, the kernel should
start to load, and after that it all depends on the build options and
other parameters in the boot command. With my MILO image, anyways, I can
boot my latest kernels without any problems.
