    Default Rebuilding the kernel - establishing the default settings

    Hello,

    I have installed Redhat Linux 7.3 (kernel 2.4.18-3) on my pc. And
    also installed a SCSI raid controller. All successful so far!

    I now need to patch the kernel for an extra device I need to add.

    The problem is that if I go to the /usr/src/linux-2.4.18-3 and start
    to go through the process of re-building the kernel the make settings
    are not set up.

    If I accept the defaults (or run make oldconfig) then these defaults
    do not successfully allow me to restart the machine.

    Has anyone any idea of how I can simply get the correct existing
    setting to rebuild the kernel?

    Any help would be appreciated,

    Sean

    You need to get the .config file for your existing kernel from your
    distribution. Someone else may remember where Red Hat hides these.
