Re: compiling new kernel
Ughh, just run an additional command ( after youve installed bin86 re previous email)
does the work of copying and running lilo at the end.....

have a resue disk and maybe even a boot disk handy.
They come in handy when things dont work out as expected
Ummm, speaking from personal experience of course
