Attention John Heim, About your Custome Kernel?

I really cannot provide telephone support. But you don't need phone 
support to install a kernel.  You'll be alright if you just make sure 
your system beeps or better yet, plays a tune, when the grub menu 
appears. Did you configure that?

If you make grub make some noise when it displays it's menu, then you 
can easily fall back to your old kernel if the new one does not work.

PS: I told you yesterday that I can't even get to building the kernel 
until the weekend.  Actually, I did find a 32-bit machine to build it on 
so I don't have to put together a virtual machine. But I don't know 
where you got the idea that I'd have your kernel by Thursday.
