Re: 2.6x Kernel install help pls!!
1) kernel 188.8.131.52 (and 2.6.8 which preceded it) is a difficult one. I stuck with 2.6.7 because 184.108.40.206 wouldn't compile, and I didn't need it that badly.
2) It's always useful to post the .config file you used.
3) You may be aware that you have to choose between the ALSA and OSS sound systems. ALSA does not yet work v. well with some older sound devices, but a lot of work has already been done for the 2.6.9 release of the kernel. For the time being, try OSS and see if that works!
4) Do you know what the initrd is? Maybe this is where confusion arises. The error message, unless itself erroneous, may actually be quite helpful.
