After setting up mouse and keyboard, it has said:

ReiserFS: sda5: found reiserfs format "3.6" with standard journal
ReiserFS: sda5: using ordered data mode
ReiserFS: sda5: journal params: device sda5, size 8192, journal first block
18, max trans len 1024, max batch 900, max commit age 30, max trans age 30
ReiserFS: sda5: checking transaction log (sda5)
ReiserFS: sda5: Using rs hash to sort names
VFS: Mounted root (reiserfs filesystem).

..and then nothing..

Why I can't see a console? Remember that all I want is a simple console
where using also my Linux..

Here is the kernel configuration file content:

modpath "(hd0,4)/L4Linux_binary/build/l4/bin/x86_586/l4v2"
task "vmlinuz26" "earlyprintk=keep mem=256M console=ttyS1,115200

..and the GRUB entry:
