    You've copied it properly, but it was config from 2.6.20 and you added it to 2.6.22
    Kernel 2.6.22 have few new functions which must be configured either "on" or "off" so "make oldconfig" check's configuration file and fix it - that's why you have to answer few question. Just hit "Enter" all the time and make proper configuration with "make menuconfig"/"make xconfig" later.

    Yes! Better still, you have the start up image in /boot ... when the computer starts up, Grub lets you pick the kernel to boot to. you can edit /boot/grub/menu.list to make the count down slower. I also turned off the splash and quiet options from the boot line... seems faster without having to turn the screen on and off all the time. And I like seeing the log scroll by.

    Though... I would LOVE to change the default font shown. When I first got into linux (over 10 years ago) I had a nice font by default and loved that...

    Re: Master Kernel Thread

    This guide is wonderful. I did all the steps and worked like a charm. I compiled my kernel to the newest 2.6.22.3 stable version and it works much faster. The only problem is that when I plugged in a USB device it couldn't unmount it. I changed the config of the Kernel using the recommended settings from here.

    you're trying to use umount with sudo to unmount devices correct? Have you gotten this squared away or does it still not work for you? So then do you just hit shutdown, then unplug it once your computer is shutdown?

    find out if there are any processes blocking you from unmounting:

    Code:
    ps x | grep /media/disk

    Re: Master Kernel Thread

    Well I actually think I know whats the problem. I ran "dmesg | tail" and it told me:

    Unable to load NLS charset iso8859-1
    FAT: IO charset iso8859-1 not found

    Is there a way to make those modules load? I don't want to compile the kernel again but if that is truly the only way then I will do it.

    Re: Master Kernel Thread

    Modules can be loaded via two files:
    /etc/modules
    /etc/initramfs-tools/modules

    If you edit initramfs-tools, you must run update-initramfs.

    Look around the google a little to read up on initramfs before doing it. I think you just put the module name in there. (that's what I do to get piix loaded right away for DMA)

    The ability to add patches. For example, many people use the suspend2 patches, others may need a patch to get their particular hardware to work, and so on. Users should be able to choose from a list of common patches, or supply their own from a file. Multiple patches should also be allowed, with checks to see if there is a conflict of course.

    Another nice thing would be a simple kernel configurator to enable/disable certain common features without having to dig through the hideous mess of options that is kconfig. Things like debugging support, USB suspend, etc.

    Also perhaps ability to choose a different kernel version?
