More Debian fun

What...I'm still learning--what, is dmesg a command to run that I redirect
to a text file?

Actually, I think I must've been doing something else when I told you I
tried a custom kernel with nearly all the IDE controllers in it. I did
make config
make bzImage
and then cp /usr/src/linux/arch/i386/boot/compressed/bvmlinux /floppy/linux
cd /floppy
rdev linux /dev/fd0

It didn't boot at all, so I re-made the root disk from the disk I got from
you. So I don't know if there were more or fewer. (BTW, I did the kernel
compile on the machine that works.)
