Ok, you give an important detail...
Suppose the new mm5 patch is released...
how can I reverse before apply the new patch?
Could you suggest me the command? So I have an idea how to do...

Just another question...
Suppose I would like to patch the kernel with 2 different patches for
different problems...for example mm4 and RTC for Real Time
Should I use the same command:
patch -p1 < /path/220.127.116.11-mm4.bz2
patch -p1 < /path/rtc-patch.gz
Or should I use a dfferent way?
If I forget what patches I have installed how can can I see the list of
installed paches? :)
Thanks and sorry for the log list of questions...I'm a Newb...
