Ok, I see.
I wrote "error" instead of "WARNING", but it was a mistake. Sorry...

My ".config" file may be too strange for you because I am a beginner
in configuring or building kernels.
I probably added many vain components to the kenel unconsciously.

Thanks, but I'd already gained the GRUB which has the "modaddr"
command by using the patch (grub-0.97-os.1.diff.gz) you made.
And I tried to boot L4Linux/Fiasco(+l4dope) with it, however it failed.
The kernel configuration is equal to the posted file.
The "menu.lst" in the "/boot/grub" directory and the loader
configuration file "linux26.cfg" are as follows.

[/boot/grub/menu.lst] ------------------------------

[linux26.cfg] ---------------------------------------
verbose 0
task "vmlinuz26" "mem=256M video=l4fb root=/dev/hda1"

After GRUB loads modules, a black mouse cursor and a "Linux console"
window are displayed (the window often aren't).
But I cannot use my keyboard and mouse (the cusor won't move and keys
produce nothing).
Besides, the console message stops on the way (stop points are
different every time like following).

l4fb: DOpE framebuffer at 0x12005000, size 600k
l4fb: mode is 640x480x16, linelength=1280, pages=0

I cannot understand the cause of this behavior...
I'm reading the ML logs, but I don't solve it yet.
May I request your advice ?
