Subject: Re: Booting Sun ultra sparc 60 with "own" kernel.

Hello,

than´s for your answer. 
don´t know how to make a "makemenuconfig" on a olready compiled kernal
image. do i have to change to /usr/src/linux directory? or is it a
additional packaga that i have to install additionally? If i would be
able to see all the configs on the original cd-image, that would help...

best reagards, Harald.
