there *is* some bug with the 2.6.9 kernel. i can fully compile a 2.6.9
kernel while running a 2.6.8 kernel, but my machine crashes (really
badly too, power off and all, not even a frozen screen) when i compile a
2.6.9 while running a 2.6.9. this behaviour happened three times in a
row, crashes at the exact same spot of the compile (or so i believe,
remember, no frozen screen or anything). but under 2.6.8 everything
i have not filed a bug report yet.
