new kernel, what did I miss?

I built a new 2.6.18-rt7 kernel from vanilla + IM patch in order to make my 
Dapper install more suitable for Linux audio.  I started with the stock 
2.6.15 config from /boot and changed a few appropriate options for the new 
kernel, then built it with make-kpkg.

The result booted, and is running (and made Rosegarden quit whining about the 
timer resolution being too low), but the screen was blank during the boot, 
and the cute little Kubuntu graphical boot thingie didn't work.

I wonder what I missed.  I'd like to either fix the cute little graphical 
thingie, or disable it in favor of the old fashioned plain text boot.
