 My standard response for today is "maybe you compiled the kernel for
the wrong processor" (e.g. whatever Marcelo has as the default config,
instead of selecting the processor you've got).  I'm not entirely sure
about this response because usually you get to see an "uncompressing the
kernel" message, but if it was a grub/configuration problem you would
surely drop back to grub.
