Right. So you do the "build" part and not the "install" part, and copy the kernel to the appropriate spot. > 2. When it says above "copy it", what is "it" here? A file?

If you follow the first kernel-building procedure in the section (currently) number 9.3, then instead of the final step ("make install"), just try "ls kernel". -- Lowell Gilbert, embedded/networking software engineer, Boston area: resume/CV at http://be-well.ilk.org:8088/~lowell/resume/ username/password "public" _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
