+ Compiling and running the 2.1.x kernels requires up-to-date
+ versions of various software packages. Consult
+ ./Documentation/Changes for the minimum version numbers required
+ and how to get updates for these packages. Beware that using
+ excessively old versions of these packages can cause indirect
+ errors that are very difficult to track down, so don't assume that
+ you can just update packages when obvious problems arise during
+ build or operation.
CONFIGURING the kernel:

- Do a "make config" to configure the basic kernel. "make config"
