OK, I'm slightly stumped.  So, I've just checked into CVS some 
additional changes to DOCBoot.  There is a small (but important) fix to 
memory size detection, which shouldn't affect you since you're not using 
initrd (I think).

There is also a new option in doc_bootstub.h: #define DEBUG_BUILD.  This 
will print out some interesting info during the "Installing DOCBoot" 
phase, and wait for a keypress.  Please copy it down and let me know 
what it says.  It will also be more verbose during the actual kernel 
loading phase; hopefully that will let us pin down exactly where it's
