    SubjectRe: Kernel 2.4.1 on RHL 6.2
    From
    Date
    Wow, I had no idea.  I was following advice I received a long time ago
    from a mailing list. If I remove those symlinks how do I go about
    compiling the kernel without receiving the same errors as Srinath?

    Thanks for the correction,

    Steve
