Netatalk is already installed and working with AppleTalk-via-IP. I'm trying to
enable AppleTalk-over-Ethernet (which needs appletalk.o or a custom kernel).

Already checked (and just verified) that appletalk.o is not compiled into my
2.2.20 kernel.

Hmmmm. Looks like I may have to take the plunge and recompile the kernel, but
I'd much rather have a loadable module than fool with it. Haven't done a kernel yet.

Correct me if I'm wrong here - for a new kernel with appletalk, I need:
kernel-source-2.2.20 (version I have), and kernel-package (recommended for
custom kernels), right? Or can I just make config (i.e. - this would NOT be a
custom kernel) and enable it during the build?

(BTW - thanks both for your quick assistance!)
