actually, i now think it might have been caused by the fact that 'make oldconfig' wasnt porting the settings over correctly.. now that the new settings are made it might work...
...if it werent for the fact that now its giving me an error saying
VFS: Cannot open root device "811" or unknown-block(8,17)
Please append a correct "root=" boot option
kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(8,17)
just a side-note, this is set up on a raid 1 configuration through a megaraid card... but it shouldnt cause any issues because all the options relating to it are set, even though the kernel ran on the defaults (without support for the usb pci card)
any reason this would happen after putting the kernel settings in? and why it still comes up after reverting to default settings? ...ive tried a bunch of the fixes on here with no luck
PS - yeah, for some reason 'make oldconfig' didnt work so i used 'make xconfig' and saved the old settings to a config file, and loaded them to the new kernel
