Hi Again,

	I began this by getting the 2.4.19 source from kernel.org. 
(Actually this has been an ongoing hurdle, started at 2.4.18 weeks 
	Because 2.4.3 is such a big jump to 2.4.19 I thought it good 
to simply compile a new kernel. This may be where it went wrong. 
	At the begining I was not certain where to copy the compiled 
bzImage file. I did a "make mrproper" to start over and from then on 
"make *anything*" gives me file not found error. I only get to do 
this stuff late at night and it is 4am for me. My hope is this server 
will continue to function tomorrow, now only 4 hours away.

	Please Keeep the suggestions coming, I am learning. Can you 
explain a bit more about targz and patches.
