Something went wrong. Here's the entire message it gave me. The entire thing was greek to me, so I have no idea how to troubleshoot it.

You can compile the new kernel. And not delete the old one. If the new one is not stable, you can always reboot and boot the latest stable one.

How to do this?

after make bzImage, don't make install instead just cp arch/i386/boot/bzImage /boot/newkernelname

and then add an entry to your lilo.conf

image = /boot/newkernelname
root = /dev/hdXY
label = 260test2 (if u wish)
read-only

Then when you boot up at lilo menu, you can choose whichever you prefer.

The link still crashes Konqueror. I tried just yuray.id.ru and it said "internal error occurred, file not found".

I already know how to dual boot a kernel, but hearing that 2.6 is still really buggy, especially about sound (which I use heavily), i don't want to waste the effort just yet. Thanks anyway, though.

On another note, I finally got the driver that came on the asus cd to compile, but trying to load it gave me a 'device does not exist' error. I then noticed that it was for 3c90x, not 3c92x. Is the driver that came with the mobo the wrong driver for my hardware?

Hmm. Got the patch, but it still isn't working. I suspect it might be some difference between 2.4.20 and 2.4.21. I just compiled a new 2.4.21, but I have some random issues to work out of it before i can try this patch on it. I'll get back to you when I can try it.
