Me too. Breezy's 2.6.12-9-386 works fine on my Athlon 3400+.
Neither 2.6.15-20-k7 nor 2.6.15-20-386 will boot successfully. When I boot, the screen is immediately corrupted (changes to strange video mode) and the computer freezes. If I remove "splash" then the screen doesn't corrupt, but the process hangs at "Begin: Waiting for root file system...". It appears that it's not loading any modules at all.
My root file system is on a RAID1.
