Here's a tidbit of info for those of you using RH6.0, recompiling your
kernel, rebooting and getting failed module dependencies and or a pause
at "Finding module dependencies" while booting the new kernel. Edit the
Makefile in /usr/src/linux and take out the "-15" in "EXTRAVERSION" then
create a dir 2.2.5 under /lib/modules and run depmod -a 2.2.5. That's
what hung me up for 2 days.
Hope it helps
