[ale] Compiling the linux 2.4.4 kernel with NFSv4 support.SUCCESS !



WooHoo!! Make config is pretty brutal unless your name is Alan Cox. Make
menuconfig is a much better process.

I'm going to have to look at the NFSv4 stuff more closely. It seems to
be geared towards resolving the security woe of the previous NFS
versions. Which is a great thing! NFS is really usefull.
