Re: deb modules

Which question?

Since you know you will use them, it makes sense to say "Y" and link them
into the kernel.

"make zlilo" will do everything for you, given that LILO is set up to boot
/vmlinuz . It may overwrite what /vmlinuz is linked to now. I have my LILO
set up to boot a few different kernels, just in case the one I've just built
doesn't work.

Yes, though to be safe you want to do this before running LILO, so if you
have a crash you don't have to boot with half a kernel.

It did when I built 1.3.32 . I am having some sort of problem with 1.3.36
in that my system dies when it goes multi-user. I ran all of the scripts
in init.d one-by-one and didn't find the problem. I'll see if there's a
1.3.37 yet.
