This can be done either under fdisk in Linux or Windows.

1. RedHat 5.2, "/boot/System.map" and "/boot/System.map"

Hello,

Would someone know how to configure  modules with the
"/boot/System.map"  and  "/boot/System.map" files in RedHat 5.2?
I can't seem to find any references on the RedHat site to these files.
In 5.1 all you had to do was rename your kernel with a name like
"vmlinuz-2.0.35.x" and an accompanying modules directory called
"/lib/modules/2.0.35.x" and the modules were loaded properly.  It took
me awhile to figure that one out...and RedHat goes and changes the rules
again ;-\

Thanks, Luc.
