Relax. All that most people are asking for is a rescue disk with a
zImage kernel, possibly at the expense of less SCSI drivers compiled
into the kernel. After all, how many laptops have DPT RAID controllers?
(I realise that there are non-laptop systems that need zImage, but let's
be realistic - *most* systems that need zImage are laptops).
