So I thought: but it isn't!  I think that's because it's picking up a 
.config that isn't marking the module packages for inclusion

That lots of modules aren't marked for inclusion as loadable modules 
or compiled in ... I assume ... but the bottom line is that I don't 
know, exactly what they are as I have the basic source tree of 2.4.18 
from the distro and the working image from 2.4.18-bf2.4 but I don't 
know (do I?) what the .config is that made the 2.4.18-bf2.4 and if I 
could start from that I think I'd be home and dry and could just add 
RAID and take out quite a bit I don't need and probably add a bit of 
IP tracking ... trouble is, I can't see how I get that starting 
config for 2.4.18-bf2.4.  Any idea how do I find out?
Should it only be the RAID built-in?

but I don't think the kernel-image package gives me that, or, to be 
more accurate, I'm sure it does but it's not in the /usr/src 
directory tree obviously and I'm looking for someone on the list who 
I'm sure does know, to tell me how I can get this ...

Don't understand this.  Can you expand?

I know I've looked through that several times and it's probably I've 
got to that point where I keep misreading the same bit ...

Nah, I'm a group therapist and family/systems therapist by main 
training so I guess I turn to the group/family PRN.  Sorry if it's a 
pain for those who really know what they're doing: I'd offer you a 
free place in a group but I run them in a high secure hospital so 
you'd have to kill someone first to get in...

Thanks again!
