The files probably did not change that much.

Ciao, Marcus


That's what I needed! Thanks Marcus. Initially, I thought the new source would
simply install in /usr/src/linux-<version no.> and then the symlink for 'linux'
and 'linux-obj' would be used to point to the active kernel. Right now I have
both linux-2.6.25.20-0.5 and linux-2.6.25.20-0.7 sources installed (no
linux-2.6.25.20-0.5-obj) and that works fine. That's what prompted the initial
concern.

Thanks again.
