I was only being half serious,  was I likely to just not bother compiling in 
something as obvious as a network card driver?  It was the first thing I 
looked for.  I thought there was something I had to do to get it to see the 
card at boot.

I'd just spent the night compiling the kernel three times, only to discover 
the following day, and after the message was sent that I needed to re-run 
lilo for it to see the changes to the kernel.  I still not sure why, possibly 
it was still using the image on the host /boot directory.

On that point am I right in saying there can only be one valid /boot 
directory as far as lilo is concerned?
