Hi Ben

I've repartitioned my system so that I've room to rsync your kernel and
I've gone through "make pmac_config" and "make xconfig" to tailor the
kernel for my setup but in trying to compile the kernel, I've got an
error that I can't resolve:

:/usr/src/linux$ fakeroot make-kpkg clean
Search pattern not terminated at -e line 1.
/usr/bin/make -f /usr/share/kernel-package/rules real_stamp_clean
Search pattern not terminated at -e line 1.
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/benh_kernel'
test ! -f .config || cp -pf .config config.precious
cp: cannot create regular file `config.precious': Permission denied
make[1]: *** [real_stamp_clean] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/benh_kernel'
make: *** [clean] Error 2

No doubt this is my ignorance at work but I'd appreciate some guidance.
