RE: ncpfs module and kernel recompile
I do my kernel builds a little differently however they always seem to work.
I'll assume that you ran the patch-kernel and got the updated modutils. I don't
know if the modutils are an absolute requirement however the doc does say
these utils are for 2.1.18 and above.
After I run my "make config" or menuconfig or xconfig, I run make zImage. The
readme in linux says that "If your kernel is too large for "make zImage", use "make bzImage"".
I've used both, they work well.
Following that I do a make install. Everything seems to get copied into /boot.
My filenames are "vmlinuz" as well. When the install asks if I want to run lilo I answer yes.
Following that I go to the root directory rm the existing vmlinux and System.map and re-link them to the newly installed boot image and map. ( ln -s boot/vmlinuz-2.1.29 vmlinuz and ln -s boot/System.map-2.1.29 to System.map). Then I run lilo again and reboot.
I know this is not exactly what the documentation says to do however it always seems to work.
