I'm a little new at this. I want to upgrade my kernel from my
Libranet 2.4.21. I have a RAID controller (IDE) that appears as a
SCSI device for some reason. So I need to use initrd to boot
(correct?). At least that's the way Libranet set it up for me. That
means that I can't use a pristine kernel, I need the cramfs/initrd
patch. I got a kernel panic when trying the pristine kernel.
Since I can't find that anywhere perhaps I should use the
Debian kernel. I found that at backports.org. I guess it would be ok
even thought I'm not running a "stable" system. There is a source and
a .deb that looks already compiled. Since I want to save my settings
from before, I need to use the source (correct?).
Are my assumptions even close to reality?
