Question moving to 2.6


I installed the kernel following the instructions in
/boot/README.initrd. Everything was ok with the new kernel. Previously I used the barecpi.i kernel because of the acpi support. When I again chose the old kernel from the lilo menu, there was kernel panic. I modified the line in lilo.conf that concerns the old kernel, from "image=/boot/vmlinuz" to "image=/boot/vmlinuz-ide-". Then after restarting and choosing the 2.4 kernel there was no problem, but there was no acpi support. Probably the bare.i kernel is loaded. I wonder what I have to do to load the bareacpi.i kernel when I want to use 2.4 kernel?

Thank you in advance.

I solved the problem myself. I just copied the bzImage, and config of the bareacpi.i kernel from the install CD 1 to a folder in /boot and told lilo that the image is in that folder. Thanks to all who read this post
