Well, wish me luck. I'll be uncommenting those lines and try building a
kernel with them enabled...

Other folks I can't say, but they are a lot of Compaq/DEC folks out here
seriously lurking around ;-)

Oh, my continuing saga of a 2.3.99 custom kernel build:
Oh joy! I managed to compile a kernel!
BUT, the boot crapped out at the parallezing fsck, it complained that a

Huh? Any ideas? This is a perfectly good 2.2.14 system.
