    SubjectRe: cannot load *any* modules with 2.4 kernel
    Before I build i do:
    PATH=/usr/local/modutils/sbin:$PATH

    Therefore it must be reading it first, sorry I should have mentioned
    this... just have done so much to try and get it to work I can't
    remember it all :)

    In response to Willy's post, yeah it was by hand, i can't get that comp
    on the network yet :(

    I will answer all your detailed questions and rebuild the kernel, but it
    didn't have any revisions after names, I'll rebuild with that exact
    .config i posted after a make clean mrproper to ensure its installing
    the new kernel. Then I'll also try disabling modversion.

    Thanks!
    George
