I got to the chapter on Installing a kernel and ran into a booting problem.

My start-up distro was Slackware 7.0 (kernel 2.2.13). I tried to install the
2.2.16 kernel. Everything appeared to go well until I rebooted. This is what
happened
----------------------------
LILO Boot Loader

boot: Linux
Loading Linux......
Uncompressing Linux... Ok, booting the kernel
Linux version 2.2.16 (root at fls) (gcc version etc...)
mapped APIC to ffffe000 (00238000)
Console: colour VGA+ 80x25
Calibrating delay loop ... 6.58 BogoMIPS
Memory: 10504k/12288k available (932k kernel code, 428k reserver, 376k
date, 48k init)
Checking if this processor honours the WP bit even in Supervisor mode... Ok.
Dentry bash table entries: 2048 (order 2, 16k)
Buffer cache bash table entries: 16384 (order 4, 64k)
Page cache bash table entries: 4096 (order 2, 16k)
Kernel panic: Kernel cmpiles for Pentium+, requires TSC
In swapper task - not syncing
      [hangs.....]
-------------------

Here is a snip of my /etc/lilo.conf

image = bzImage
root = /dev/hda1
label = Linux
read-only

I followed the instructions to the letter. What could be wrong?

TIA
