    lets see, I configured it with `make gconfig' and I set
    VGA_CONSOLE to yes,
    VIDEO_SELECT to yes
    MDA_CONSOLE to no
    FRAMEBUFFER_CONSOLE to yes
    and FONTS to no

    So, it should be working...theoretically

    There seems to be something related here but I don't know exactly if it will help.

    Code:
    title Fedora Core (2.6.12.3)
            root (hd1,0)
            kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.12.3 ro root=/dev/hdb2
    Try it like this and see!

    I feel the problem is with 'initrd', since you hv not created 'initrd' you do not need it!.

    Yeah, I tried that but I just got
    Code:
    VFS: Unable to open an initial console
    Kernel panic -not syncing: No init found.  Try passing init= option to kernel
    I think the problem may have to do with the kernel not communicating with the initrd properly, but I'm new at this and I can't be sure.

    Okay, so I noticed that I didn't configure RAM disk or initrd support into the kernel. I reconfigured it, got the kernel to boot, but now my nvidia driver seems to be malfunctioning.

    You'll have to reinstall nvidia, you need to do that every time you modify the kernel
