Hmmm, thsi shall not cause you to loose your ethernet card and mouse!

Since you are running the custom kernel, do you still have the default FC Kernel ?

Take a look into /usr/src/
Is there a directory called linux-2.6.5-1.358
so can you
cd /usr/src/linux-2.6.5-1.358

also is there in your /lib/modules directory
a directory called 2.6.5-1.358 ?

Can you
cd /lib/modules/2.6.5-1.358

If both is OK then check in your /boot if there are following files
vmlinuz-2.6.5-1.358
System.map-2.6.5-1.358
and
initrd-2.6.5-1.358.img

If yes you are a lucky guy. Bott then from your default kernel.

So edit your /boot/grub/grub.conf it can boot from vmlinuz-2.6.5-1.358.
If thery isn't already such entry, then copy paste the one fro teh custom kernel
and edit the parameters so you have the option to boot the default kernel.

When you are done give feddback if everythink is OK: So you can boot the default kernel and
have all your devices.

Then we'll see what to do next.

Vlad-A, I am booting to the default kernel now, all of the devices work so what can I do to erase the old .358custom kernel?
Or should I try to re-write it with vi? You have been the biggest help so far, I appreciate all of this.

Hello axess_denied,

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.

Does this new kernel have any problem with the FC2 distro? I am afraid of messing with kernels now because I am fairly new to the game. If it is not going to cause any problems, I will definitly do this. Vlad, Sie wohnin in Stuttgart? Ich spreche Deutsch, Sie sollen mir anschreiben. Ja, und danke.
