Hello Jerry,

My main mistake was that I had
makeoptions    DEBUG=-g
in the kernel config file. That made for a ~130MB kernel so when I
compiled and tried to install a new one, it ran out of space (it would
be about 260 MB but I only had 242 MB).

Many thanks for all you detailed instructions though!
