I did all of this stuff, see post above, it worked, thank you.
Uh, I still have the symlinks pointing to an older kernel in /usr/src/.
Shouldn't that be updated to reflect the newest kernel or is this not
important? The up2date applet does give me new kernels quite often, don't
want to have to go through all of this a couple of times a month, though.

What is a good line wrap length for posting in Usenet? I have mine set to
76 characters (Xnews) but it will go as far as 78, see screencap here:
Long lines in posts like this always get wrapped and it is hard to tell
when to continue a line of instructions like you gave me. I like the way
you used the reverse backslash "\" to indicate that a line continues.
This helped a lot with your instructions. Good looking out.
