Thanks.  Isn't there an option somewhere to preserve the old 
configuration and add any new options?  I think I saw this somewhere, 
but can't remember what it is.  I never quite remember what I set for 
all the options!

That's another question that's been puzzling me.  Some instructions say 
make dep then make clean, others are the other way.  And if one makes a 
minor config change is a make clean required, or only if switching to a 
new kernel version?

That last part is pretty much what I've been doing.

Thanks for all the help!
