    I am sure you will have missed several things in your build.... I did on my first one too :) Shit, I'm really surprised the box booted :lol:

    Did you remember to compile SCSI emulation? That's one that is often overlooked.

    Well to help me out I imported the old .config file from the previous kernel 2.6.14-xx and modified it from there. I honestly don't recall if SCSI emulation was compiled or not. So far seems to be working. I only removed things I was certain I didn't need on a desktop like dell laptop support, etc.... no need to have those included or as modules

    what advantage does removing unneeded things from the kernel have on system performance? or any other advantage?
