Ryan,

	I've made this private, to avoid bandwidth-waste.

	This sequence seems almost fine, so let me correct a bit:
	in /usr/src/linux
	1) make dep
	2) make clean
	3) make bzImage
	4) make modules
	5) make modules_install

	Since you didn't perform a "make clean" before you built the modules, you
could have had some old .o files laying about.  If, though, this was just
after unpacking the tarball, then you should be fine.

	Yeah, unless you actually use the ram disk, I'm remove this line.

	I keep the sources in /usr/src/linux-2.0.36, or linux-2.2.0-pre9 or ....
I then create a symbolic link to linux (e.g. in /usr/src, ln -s
linux-2.2.0-pre9 linux).

	Cool system!  I have to get along with a Pentium 200MHz MMX.  I'm happy
though.
