I'm pleased you have now got it working. I am not an expert, but were you
going from kernel 2.2.20-idepci to a custom kernel 2.6.8?
That is a big and brave step due to the modularised kernel (>= 2.4).
So you are now running a 2.6 Kernel using apt-get? If so, 1) compare
config files (under /boot/config-xxxxx) against your custom

install kernel-source-2.6xxx' should pull in any packages needed for
Since machine is now deployed and working you perhaps have time to
