I don't know what you did wrong, but to get your systm back; boot with a floppy and restore the old kernal.  Be sure to run lilo(if that is what you use) and there is a special switch you need to tell it your HD is not mounted on /
It sounds like you selected something wrong in the config process.

My question is what caused me not being able to logon with the
new kernel although I used the same .config file that I have
working on another machine with the same hardware.  I need to
be able to use the new kernel version, not just being able to
log on. Right now I am stuck with using the old kernel.

Thanks,
kle

Obviously, there is something wrong with your new kernel.
Can you give us the last messages that appear on your screen?

I can't, because I can not login with the new kernel. Unless
you'd like the ones with the old kernel which looks normal:

Sorry  I can not cut and paste it.

Is it too much to ask to write them down and type them in?
I don't see how I can help if I don't know what goes wrong.

Is it really such big problem to write it down on the paper when cut'n paste does not work ? I can't believe what Microsoft have done with the computer users.
Well, I guess you probably did not start lilo after rewriting
old kernel with the new one (if you did it this way).
To run lilo you must first boot from diskette. If you can, use only boot diskette (kernel diskette) and use root=/dev/hd?? lilo prompt kernel parameter and boot the disk, then it should be enough just to run 'lilo'.
If it's not true, try to read /usr/src/linux/Documentation/Changes and update programs which your new kernel need to work correct. There could be a mistake.
