Well, the problem is, I need the pcmcia_cs.o module for my laptop 
NIC.  The only package that includes that is the
pcmcia-modules-2.4.18-bf2.4 package, which, as its name implies, 
requires the 2.4.18-bf2.4 kernel.

Unfortunately, the bf2.4 kernel, being an installation kernel, is 
pretty bloated.  So I want to recompile and reinstall the package 
2.4.18-bf2.4, instead of recompiling both 2.4.18-bf2.4 and all 
the modules for cs-modules.

Am I nuts for doing this?

Thanks in advance,

Jesse Meyer
