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.
