To tidy up from the package install..

remove the via-rhine & via module names from /etc/modules & /etc/modules/aliases as they are compiled in now..
and do update-modules

Do iptables-save to show any existing loaded rules

and set up another session to ping the boxes NIC
You can then watch it go down and come back up!!
Kind of the last torture before judgement day!!

this has been a long thread - and it might not be over yet..... do you think this is what irc was invented for (might have been quicker!)

....is there anything i need to do to get the system to boot to that image every time...

like modify lilo.conf (make linux.new the default) and run lilo again?

Yes, all those..

In lilo.conf, change the Default = line to say linux.new
then lilo -v to make it stick..

The only time you will need to reboot is to test the boot procedure, eg simulate mains fail, or changing kernels.
Because of the extra kernels etc in /boot, it would be a good time to remove any files not related to linux.new or the last kernel, including the /lib/modules directories of the unrelated kernels..
Keep the sources! In fact make a copy of the entire directory exactly as it is now.
Make the directory name of the original sources match the Makefile version number.

There will be a few modifications to recommend once you get to running as a backup server, but they should be different threads...
Congratulations..
