To build the kernel, you can do make config (will nearly always work), or
build menuconfig (needs ncurses-devel to run) and make xconfig (needs wish
and X working)

yep... it shouldn't have let you install kernel-devel without glibc-devel.
go back and install it :)

Redhat Lilo is built with LARGE_EDBA which means the largest kernel possible

sounds like a problem with the cd or the cdrom driver.. ATAPI is it?
check with other cd's?
