kernel info

this is more of an FYI for the newer members to Linux, If you want to know about the Kernel........goto /usr/src/Kernel(version) directory....there is a documentation directory, for the 2.4.20 kernel this folder total 5 megs of info. 1.6 megs of texts alone. Read thru this directory, very interesting stuff............

There's a few funny bits and jokes in some of the source files if you look hard enough. I laughed for a long time when it crashed and said "kernel panic: watch out! Mr Potatoe head is on the loose!!!"
Nice user-friendy error messages!
