Me and My Linux Luv and Hate

I have been using linux for some time know, I still am very green. I have a Epox 8dra+ running an AMD +1700 tbred. I oc hard in windowsXP never had a prob. I purchased RedHat 8 with the Kernel 2.4.18. That was a leaning experience for me. After a long sturggle getting my options to work (ie. NIC, Audio, TV card etc..) correctly. Eventually doing google and reading here I was able to work everything with the exception of the agpgart.(I do own a Geforce4 ti4200) I tried to OC my chip and load RH. Real bad mistake, the kernel would not boot at all, I was running 10@200 = +2400@2.04ghz 400fsb. not only would it not boot but it destroyed my file system. I thought maybe it was me. But everytime that I changed the FSB it would crash. I chucked RH....I thought I'd give SuSE a try, so I picked up 8.2 with the 2.4.20 kernel. everything worked out of the box, with the exception or the agpgart.

I loaded the TI4200 drivers and put the option NVagp. I dont know if its working or not.

Im happy to say that I can run this rig all day at 2.04ghz 400fsb I think it was RH that was the problem.

I am having a prob though with the kernel source though I make xconfig and do everything that I need to adjust, hit save and exit it then says make dep. I do that and that enought to work correctly. Ive tried the make modules and make modules_install, but I get errors about the agpgart_en.o not found error, I have no idea what that means.

I just need a little help.

First answer: In the /usr/src/linux directory, there is a readme file, read it, read it again, then really read it. The important part is moving the 'new' kernel into position (read the readme closely).
Second answer: "I get errors about the agpgart_en.o not found error, I have no idea what that means."
I don't know either.
