"This kernel requires the following features not present on the CPU: cmov Unable to boot - please use a kernel appropriate for your CPU.

You should only get this if you are using a Pentium II or something really old.  The problem here is that newer kernels than 2.6 don't have true i386 support even if you tell it to compile as i386.  It will still include features like cmov that break older computers from being able to work.

Generally for very old computers like above, you need to use a 2.6.x kernel and of course make sure it is i386 and all the binaries are as well.
