Hi mail,

deimos ~ # cat /boot/grub/menu.lst 
timeout 5
splashimage=(hd0,0)/boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz
title=Gentoo Linux 2006.1
root (hd0,0)
kernel /boot/kernel-2.6.20-gentoo-r6_2 root=/dev/sda3
video=vesafb:1280x800-32@60,mtrr,ywrap
splash=silent,fadein,theme:synack quiet CONSOLE=/dev/tty1

Also, attached my 2.6.20 kernel config file... Right now using Compaq
laptop, but config file was used from my previous thinkpad...
