I use a script to do my building, so I end up with exactly what is being
discussed.

Mike was here...

/usr/src/linux/build:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
#! /bin/bash

cd /usr/src/linux
rm -f .version `find -name "*.orig" -print` `find -name "*.rej" -print` `find -name ".*.orig" -print` `find -name ".*.rej" -print`

VERSION=`grep VERSION Makefile | head -1 | cut -f3 -d' '`
PATCH=`grep PATCHLEVEL Makefile | head -1 | cut -f3 -d' '`
SUB=`grep SUBLEVEL Makefile | head -1 | cut -f3 -d' '`

cd /
ln -sf vmlinuz-${VERSION}.${PATCH}${SUB} vmlinuz
ln -sf zSystem-${VERSION}.${PATCH}${SUB} System.map
rm -f *-${VERSION}.${PATCH}${SUB}

cd /usr/src/linux
make zlilo modules
shutdown -r +5
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
