Hi Bill,

Tks for your advice.

This is good ... although making a backup of GENERIC is somewhat redundant.

Noted with thanks. But in case of trouble where can I get the old kernel back.

GENERIC _is_ the old kernel. That's why it's recommended never to edit GENERIC, but to always copy it to a new config file.

Again, it won't hurt anything to back it up ... you can
never have too many backups.


You don't mention if you've updated your source code
or not.
Just a warning, if you _did_ update your source
code, you need
to remake world as well as the kernel or you'll have
If you didn't update your source, the steps outlined
should cover everything.

No, I am not going to upgrade the kernel, only to activate SCSI support. Sorry for not mentioning it on my first posting.

NP. I just wanted to bring it up in case. It's a fairly common mistake to update ones sources, build a new kernel without rebuilding world, and then wonder where all the problems are coming from ;)
