Its actually a Pentium90, so I doubt its a kernel compile issue regarding
the processor selected.  Next time I'm physically at the machine I'll try to
recompile the kernel.

I've had that before - for me it was down to compiling a kernel for 80386
when I was actually running an AMD K6 chip... (doh!)

Go back into your kernel config and double check everything ;-)
