Yesterday I was reading the man page for quik. I saw something that may
help, it related to specifying in the auik.conf file any additional kernels
that you may installed. It's simple really, when you look at it. You'll have
to go look for yourself, I don't remember (maybe someone on the list has the
exact info) what the line was, but go look there, it'll help.
