I really am not sure I know all that.  This is where I am confused after 
reading your first email.  I haven't tried it yet due to this :)  I have 
never attempted a patch before, so step by step on the three patches would be 
a grand assist.  I've looked at some of the patch stuff, and it looks like it 
will touch several files, and I am asuming that somehow, patch knows how this 
works and proceeds. . .  If I can do this, I think I will put my own little 
howto together for some of the other locals that are in similar situations.

I don't have lilo here, it's grub, and it is completely automatic once I 
finish modifying the .config.  Then Libranet takes over, does all the 
compiling/grub'n and tells me I can boot whenever. . . shrug.. Kinda miss 
lilo though :)

I really appreciate the help Jeremy!

Wishing you well.
