SubjectRe: Upgrading to a test kernel
Hello Riley:

I believe you are correct in that it is installed in the default kernel
supplied by Red Hat. I have sinced recompiled the kernel with options
that I want and one of them wasn't the NFS stuff. I will recompile
tonight and add it back in. Thanks for the heads up.
