This is not intel. It's a Macintosh. In order to install a new kernel it is the best idea to fetch a vanilla kernel from kernel.org and patch it with the series by Benjamin Herrenschmidt ([url]ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/benh/[/url]).

    According to his reply he has the two kernels, both for the mac, and the two
    sets of modules. So the thing that is wrong is trying to use LILO. He has
    Bootx which must have a way of setting up for the new kernel. I don't
    suppose there is any reason to shift over to yaboot in that case.

    By the way, I note that your post came from the mailing list. I thought I
    sent mine just to the newsgroup. It used to be that mail to the list went
    to the newsgroup, but not the other way from the newsgroup to the list. I
    read at the newsgroup and if it is posted with the note at the bottom from
    the email list, then I send a response there. Otherwise I just post to the
    newsgroup. I'm just curious if the newsgroup stuff regularly comes to the
    mailing list.
