kernel junkie

im addicted to compiling and installing kernels now that i figured out what i was doing wrong before. I kept trying to compile in too much stuff that i didnt need and i wasnt taking advantage of the module option. Now I have the 2.4.21, the 2.4.20-lq1 and about to do the 2.5(just for play).
