Please excuse yourself from any further postings to this thread.  I have
asked you before to do this.  If you would shut up, and if Roman would
stick to tech information rather than dispensing free social advice,
then this wouldn't be a "sorry episode", would it?

Y'know, eamjr56, I have a life.  I don't sit around all day and play
with my operating system.  I have a lot of things to do _with_ my office
desktop system.  I don't have a lot of spare time to mess with and fix
stuff that shouldn't need messing with and fixing.  I came to this forum
because I thought I might get some insights into a specific problem I'm
having, and have been met mainly with rudeness by you and Roman,
although a couple of other people had useful/thougtful suggestions.
Isn't there a moderator on this list who understands how a technical
forum should be run?

I've posted the files that Roman wanted to see, and they're there for
anyone else to look at.  So far, Roman hasn't offered me any "help" with
this problem, but has blown a lot of hot air on this forum suggesting
how I should run my life.  I'm beginning to think that there aren't many
technically literate people on this forum.  They've probably all
abandoned Gentoo and are using Debian or Ubuntu.

You need to read up on kernel building.  "make bzImage && make modules"
has worked for kernel building since probably Linux kernel 1.x.x.  Yes,
"make" will also work, and will combine these two operations into one,
but on occasion it's convenient to separate these.
