A lots of FAILED at kernel startup


I succeed to install the new kernel but I have some problems at startup.
Linux RedHat 9.0 with kernel 2.4.22 starts but it gives FAIL at:
Mount USB file system
USB mouse
USB keyboard
Iptables
And at shut down aumix- error opening mixer.
Also the sound card isnít detected(I have ACí97)
And when I access Control Center->information->SCSI I receive Attached modules: none. And in kernel 2.4.20 I can see the CD-RW ASUS.
Also in this new kernel I activated NTFS support but how can I see the NTFS partition?

How can I fix this?

P.S. I used make oldconfig to configurate the new kernel
If I give something like:
./mkinitrd ./initrd-2.4.22 2.4.22
how can I remove the ./initrd-2.4.22?

Excuse my newbies!

Well.. you'd have to create a mount point and mount the filesystem first before you can see any data on it.

a lot of times the configuration variables don't get transferred that well.
also, a lot of things may have changed inbetween kernel versions.
some modules will have different names, and will configure in different
ways. the redhat kernel isn't a vanilla kernel anyway. they change and
add a lot of code.

Why does Red Hat change the code, if it had a vanilla kernel it would seem alot faster. I upgraded to 2.6.0test7 and it's like night and day

product differentiation. marketing.
you want your company to be the first with usb, or firewire, or better smp
support. you want stuff in your kernel version that linux doesn't want in
there or doesn't think is ready.
