Default Bug#508302: linux-image-2.6.26-1-ixp4xx: flash-kernel fails with kernel doesn't fit

This is not what it ought to be. The kernel partition should be
0x00160000 (1441792) bytes large. There was a bug in the installer
image once, but I don't think it affected many people. So this is not
a bug in the kernel package.

If your root device is sda1, I suggest you flash
http://www.cyrius.com/debian/nslu2/files/sda1-2.6.18.dfsg.1-23
with upslug2 and then run
flash-kernel
to write 2.6.26 to flash.
