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
