if you are not running X, run
After the GUI comes up, check the Ethernet 10/100 cards to make sure that
you have Y (yes) or M (module) support for the card you own built into the
kernel. Linuxconf allows you to choose cards that are NOT compiled in ;-(.
If you need to compile it in, the click the appropriate card, module is find.
The go to the main menu and click on save and exit.
In the same directory,
cp vmlinux /boot/vmlinux-KERNEL.VERSION.NUMBER
cp System.map /boot/System.map-KERNEL.VERSION.NUMBER
rm System.map (it is a symbolic link, you are not deleting a file)
ln -s /boot/System.map-KERNEL.VERSION.NUMBER System.map
shutdown -h now
Add the new kernel to your milo commands in the arc cmos control window
or however you configure the srm console.
