I am getting:

kernel image is too big

in BlueCat5.0 (kver 2.6.0) when trying to tftp load an os.  My .disk file is ~= 1.6MB.  I have recently added DiskOnChip support to the kernel.

Any thoughts appreciated.

when you compiled the kernel, did you use make zImage or make BzImage ... If you used zImage then try bzImage

You can try to load DiskOnChip driver from RamDisk and not to built-in it into the kernel.

Seems to have been a distro specific issue concerning a corrupted build environment.
Thanks for your comments.
