I took care of that quite a while ago. Just have to remember to do it again
each time I move to a new collection of kernel sources. That's messed me up a
couple of times.

That sounds promising. I wouldn't have thought to look in char devices. I'd
guess that I should change the processor type before fiddling with agp, since I
might take a performance hit for no good reason if I understate my machine.

I do bzlilo.

I'll try the kernel change and keep you posted. I'm also moving my sound
stuff from /lib/modules/2.4.4./kernel/sound to /lib/modules/2.4.4/misc/sound.
That should avoid many headaches.
