Well, I did so too in the past, several times even... That's what bothers
me - as far as I recall, I don't do anything different than previous times,
and still, it just won't compile. As I said, when I just get rid of ide-cd.h,
not knowing what else to do, other errors come up with ReiserFS support...

Well - it looks exactly the same with me... :(

This can't be a hardware-related problem at all, can it? Or do I perhaps
miss some essential tools for the job?

Anyway. I'll just try to start from zero, I guess... Have some quite
things to do, and this is my only machine... :s

Thanks for the replies,
