11 Only other thing I ran into (admittedly in 2004 or 2005 or so) is if
12 genkernel is doing any initrd-magick for you you'll need to either
13 understand it and do it yourself, or config your kernel so all that
14 stuff is built-in. It was a little embarrassing when none of my JFS
15 partitions got found on that first reboot. Keep a boot CD or DVD in
16 case of real disaster, and configure your current boot kernel as an
17 alternative choice in GRUB until you get the hand-rolled version
18 stabilized.
