Last time I recomlied on it , was 5.3 and it only had 8 meg ram , Took
about 8 hrs or so for a complete compile , you know where ot does all the
obj , after cleaning the old stuff out. Best to start it before leaving wor
, come in the next morning see of ti worked or choked. After a week of this
, I gave up oon it and went back to stock kernal.
I was wondering how much diffreence it would makew now that it has 20 meg
of ram. Would bee nice to trim down the lkernal. Other option is to do it
on another machine and move the kernal over.
Got to get ti to boot firts.
