intalled it. First time the compile failed again. I then deleted the
whole source tree and started afresh. This time it worked and generated
kernel-image_2.0.13_Custom.1_i386.deb, which I then installed with dpkg.
However, when I told it to make a boot floppy, I got this:
ioctl(FDGETPRM): No such device.
Anyway I liloed and booted the new kernel. Now my sound doesn't work
in windows 95 anymore. Scratching head.....
