booting kernel..... then nada, zip, time to power cycle

I just finished following the 4.0 rc1 book, and other than a few instances
of brain fade/typos/etc... it all went pretty well, up until boot time.
When I restart, I get (approximately) :
uncompressing image Ok booting kernel
Then a bit of drive activity, then absolutely nothing.
So, I must have done something wrong when configuring the kernel. The
closest thing that I could find by searching the archives was a reference
to CPU optimization. My working SuSE 7.3 kernel uses "Pentium", while I
chose Pentium III, to match what's actually in my laptop. I did enable some
power management, so that might be the problem.
I tried to match the config used by the SuSE kernel as best I could by
eyeball but I've been spending too much time playing with LFS, not enough
sleeping, so who's to say how close I got.
Is there a mechanical way of importing the .config file used by SuSE ?
That might get me a bit closer than I am, as other than being currently
unable to use the Winmodem, SuSE is working quite well for me.
Also, this is a quite bit off topic, but apparently you have the option to
load an image during boot. Does anyone know where that image is kept, and
how to implement it's being loaded ?
