Your custome kernel is more or less the default kernel.
When you recompile the FC default kernel you will get an custom kernel.
Take a look on the Makefile in teh source directory of your default kernel.
You will see in the EXTRAVERSION Filed that the new compiled kernel
will have the "custom" rnding.
I suggest that you download the 2.6.7-rc2 kernel sorces and compile it. I have described how to do this in one of my earlier responses.
You will compiel it with the configuration that you get via make oldconfig. Do not change NTFS support. Leave the .config file
(the one generated from make .oldconfig) like it is. Just compile the kernel and boot into it. You will be asked when performing make
if you would like to enable some additional and new features. Please answer *ALL* those questions with NO!!!!!!!!!
When you have successfully booted into the 2.6.7-rc2 kernel then you can try to enable NTFS support. How this is done
is described in my replay from two days from. The replay was realted to the 2.6.5-1.358 custom kernel but it's pritty much the same
for the 2.6.7-rc2 kernel.
Start there from step 9. You do *not* need to perform steps 18,19,20.
Here again: Please answer when asked by make if you would like to enable some features with NO!!!!. The only question you can answer with
yes is the one about enabling de-bugging for NTFS.
