[LAU] [OT] - a little help with kernel building

Hello all!
   I'm just compiling/configuring a vanilla kernel. Only with the 
current configuration it won't start.
   When I boot and I can choose the kernel and it tries to start, but then the 
two LEDs on my keyboard (as in letters and numbers :-) ) start to blink 
rhythmically and nothing else happens.
   Does anyone of you have some standard ideas of, what to change? I already 
1. The RCU settings
2. disabled tickless system
3. disabled control groups
4. double-checked, that I chose the correct CPU and ACPI settings

   Points I'm not sure about are some of the memory options. There are options 
to disallow extensive access of /dev/mem, checking for corrupt memory and 
something concerning AMI and PHOENIX biosen to have the first 64k of memory. 
Those weren't there the last time I made my kernel.
   If anyone has helpful hints (not take a look at the screen please! :-) ), 
then I'd be _VERY_ grateful!
   Kindest regards
