Well, I'm telling you - I was just as worried as you were. I mean, I 
was installing that kernel per ssh on a machine I didn't even have 
physical access to.

But as it turns out it worked just fine - no problems at all, it 
didn't even complain. And I've been compiling all the kernels for 
this machine on my laptop ever since I installed it. It always 
worked. This was the first time I got these unresolved symbols 
(upgrading 2.4.17->2.4.22) but even then it worked just fine.

I mean, after all, you can still boot to the old kernel with LinuxOLD, 
can't you? Or is your machine that uptime-critical?
