Awesome. Its works. I have just a few more questions. I'm not sure what I'm doing exactly when I copy the image file for the architecture and i'm not sure what I'm doing when I copy the system.map files. Also, how does lilo know to look in the 2.610 kernel folder for my Custimage file? Just a quick explanation will do. I understand the rest. Thanks for all your help.

The image file could be anywhere on the disk but we like to keep it under /boot for sanity

The map file is read for devices, etc. It is important for lilo.

Lilo doesn't actually look at the /usr/src/linux-2.6.10 directory. Once you have a good kernel setup you can delete that. That is only there as a common place to put your kernel files.


Tell me if you got 'er up and running, I am excited!

Got the kernel up and running great it detects all my other drives. Thank you so much. Only "problem" that I had is for some reason when I set my cpu architecture to "opteron/clawhammer/athlon64" it still compiles arch/i386 instead of the x86_64 instruction set. Any ideas on that? Its not a big deal but 64bit would be cool.

Just have to get my nvidia drivers working now Thanks again

heh, glad to hear that! Knowing how to compile the kernel will be great for you in the future.

As for you arch thing . . . I am clueless. I wish I had experience with 64-bit processors

Anyhow, gl with all that stuff and I hope you enjoy your 64-bit linux experience(with all the bells and whistles).
