Kernel upgrade troubles

I've been using the 2.6.3 kernel that came with Arch 0.6 and i've decided to upgrade.  I tried using the kernel sources that come with pacman -S kernel26.  But had issues when I ran "make && make modules_install".  So i got the latest sources from kernel.org and set them up.  I've got everything pretty much working, with a couple issues.  First there are these little black dots across the top of the screen.  It's hard to describe, so check out a screenshot here.

Next, when i press control+alt+F1 my consoles look really messed up.  It looks like a scrambled pic of my desktop. 

What could I have left out of my Kernel to cause these issues.

thanks

Re: Kernel upgrade troubles

Well I've played around turning on and off some things when setting up the kernel and I fixed all the display nonsense.  If I can figure out which specific option it was I'll post it here.
