The tutorial was very helpful! I was able to compile and install a working kernel and the PC booted up with no errors at all. I have one problem, when I go into "Computer" I have CD-ROM1 and my combo drive showing... I only have the combo drive. What did I do wrong? I have never compiled my own kernel before and answered the questions in the script to the best of my ability.but could I have missed something? I have an HP Pavillion a1723w, Intel everything. Could someone shed some light on this problem? I really would like to give this another go.
