Hi Beech,

many thanks for your clear help. I will try that in a
few moments....

However, I wanted to ask you something else becuase of
your quote:

"Doing a make installworld before finding out if the
new kernel will boot will bite you big time at some
point"

Unquote

How am I able to find out if the new kernel will boot
then? Because I have done this a few times
already....but I don't like to be biten:-)
A nice Christmas eve too:-)

Dino
