1) Why on earth are you trying to install 2.5.75??????? For heavens sake dude, that is the unstable branche that alraidy produced a stable series. Either go with 2.6.x or the 2.4.x but not 2.5.x
I didn't know it was unstable.
I thought all the kernels at Kernel.org were ok to download.
2) If you have the .config file of RH 9, why didn't you just copy that file to the kernel source directories and do "make oldconfig"
Forgive me,but I'm new to this.
So,if you put a .config file in the kernel source directory and do "make oldconfig" it sets it up for you automatically,without you having to load it into that xconfig thingy?
thanks for your help,
