SubjectFrom one kernel to the other: still the same..
From my linux box(redhat5,kernel2.0.32) I went downloadin
linux-2.0.35.tar.gz . I created a /usr/src/linux2.0.35 directory where
I ve untarred it succesfully (in /usr/src, I already have directories for
kernel 2.0.32
and for 2.0.34). Then from /usr/src/linux2.0.35/linux, I did make
config/make dep/make clean/make
modules, make modules_install, and make zImage. I ve copied
/usr/src/linux2.0.35/arch/i386/boot to
/boot/vmlinuz-2.0.35, added a new stanza in /etc/lilo.conf and I also have
a copy of my kernel-2.0.35
zImage on a floppy.

I)Basically, I chose to have kernel-2.0.35 for IP_masquerade, cause I know
it is built in...
But when loading kernel-2.0.35, I do not see any difference with the other
previous kernels (exple:2.0.32)
cause I still have that same old message of "Disabling IPV4 forwarding" at
boot time, and my /etc/sysconfig/network
file still have by default :
Ok..I know I should enable that option...but for a kernel that was supposed
to have IP_masquerade built in (kernel 2.0.35)
..It should have been done automatically (otherway, I would have kept my
old kernel 2.0.32 and just play around the files).
what do U think of that??

II)As far as I know, I can leave my original kernel 2.0.32 on my hard drive
and have in its /usr/src directory, directories for
my kernel-2.0.34, kernel-2.0.35..etc). From floppy, for ie, I can decide
bootin with the kernel version of my choice.
Is that correct??
III) So, any idea of why the boot time messages of my different kernel
images are pratically similar, despite the fact that they are compiled with
different components??

Thanks for time and consideration
