Problems Rebuilding a kernel
I am running Mandrake 9 and need to tweak the kernel in order to run mkcdrec. I installed the source files during installation and everything worked fine including my cdrw on ide channel 1. My problem is that everytime I rebuild the kernel, everything works fine except the cdrw which I can no longer access (using cdrecord -scanbus to test as this is what mkcdrec uses). Prior to rebuilding the kernel, the driver used is ide-scsi, after the rebuild the driver used is ide-cd.
Is there anyway, when running my original kernel, that I can ensure my .config file actually represents the running system ?
Any help would be gratefully appreciated.
