Well, things marched right along till I got to the line for git clone
etc.

[root@coyote kernel]# git clone
rsync://www.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git
linux
bash: git: command not found

Humm, back up & find it put git stuff in /root/bin ?????

[root@coyote kernel]# /root/bin/git clone \
rsync://www.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git
linux
/root/bin/git-clone: line 2: git-init-db: command not found
* git clone [-l [-s]] [-q] [-u <upload-pack>] <repo> <dir>

So why did it put it in /root/bin? It's there, but not in my $PATH.
And theres no "make uninstall" to clean up the install so I might be
able to cleanly fix the miss-fire... Murphy rides again..
