Oh, by the way, if I try to manage the Kernel from the KDE Control Center, 
it complains, "No hardware architecture was specified!  Perhaps the Kernel 
source code is not installed on this system, or the path to the Kernel 
sources is entered incorrectly."  The displayed path to the Kernel sources 
is /usr/src/linux.  I have the kernel source in 
/usr/src/linux/kernel-source-2.4.27.  The hardware architecture drop-down is 
blank, and cannot be changed.
