Hi Andrew,

Excuse me if you already mentioned this, but how are you going about the
updating of your kernel?  If I remember correctly, you are supposed to
patch up if using tar.gz.  Are you going straight from 2.4.3 to 2.4.19?

I don't know if it matters or not, but in the event that it does, the
linuxnewbie.org howtos for kernels mention how to patch up as well. 
This was the way I had to do it to get a specific kernel to recognize my
sound card.
