Sorry for the "big" post containing the kernel .config file, I'll post
them to your other alias if I must.

Regarding the 2.2.19 kernel, I'll try it for debugging my installation
process, but can't use it for the actual install.

We are using ReiserFS on every disk partition, and using an old 2.2 
kernel would create an old-format reiserfs partition ...
