boot essentials for new kernel
I am trying to compile the 2.4.25 kernel but I am having trouble getting it to boot. It is unable to load the partition table amount other errors.
Here is my config:
Red Hat 9
IDE hard drive
Here are a couple of kernel questions:
1.) What are the minimum drivers that need to be compiled into the kernel in order to boot?
2.) What are the commands I need to issue before rebuilding after making a tweak?
3.) What is the easiest way to save my configuration file from the last build so I can make a quick tweak without having to go through all the settings?
I have read through several threads on this forum but the answers to my questions aren't very clear.
Thanks for any tips.
