Perhaps you'd like to read the above again :-)

They have done horrible things when installed on my (and others')
Compaq(s). Also, I want the choice of being able to choose exactly what
stuff I have in a monolithic kernel, what stuff to leave out and what
stuff to compile as modules. I have to compile in VPN and extra stuff,
and I just don't trust Red Hat for this.

I've never had a kernel from kernel.org - and this goes back, for me, to
the early 2.2 kernels, that didn't compile. I have only once had a
kernel.org kernel that wouldn't boot, and that was my fault.

I'd rather do my own patching on virgin source code than risk someone
else having patched the code to an unknown level, with the result that I
ruin my system. If you go back through this list's archives for the last
week, you'll see one example of someone else experiencing this.

Now perhaps you'd like to help Jeff with his Dell and segmentation fault
