Must have, since I've been running on a Adaptec 2940 and 2.[12] kernel
for years (well... :)

What exacly is the problem?

    Adam> What is that exactly?

>From the patch:

+/proc/.config support
+  Saying Y here will make a snapshot of your configuration options
+  permanently available via /proc/.config file. It is useful if you
+  compile several kernel images with different configuration options
+  and would like to keep track of which is which.
+  This option will enlarge your kernel by about 10-12 KB, depending on
+  the size of your /usr/src/linux/.config file.

I find this _MOST_ usefull...
