Hey, Linux is a real operating system with lots of options.  When you step
out on the edge, you have to start reading and hacking.  That's what adds
spice to life :-)

Use "dselect" and install the kernel source to match the kernel you are
running.  It is 6MB+ so it will take some time to download.

There is a document in /usr/doc/HOWTO that tells you how to compile the kernel.

Hexedit is *NOT* possible because the IP_FORWARD option adds 5K to the
kernel size.
