HI all:
  In this directory 'usr/src/linux/arch/i386/boot/', there are many files
are written by assemby and i know that they relate to BIOS. e.g (setup.S,
bootsect.S, bsetup.S ...etc)
But i don't know what is the exactly use of them and when will i need to use
it. Becasue i want to put the embedded linux into the bios , i don't know is
it useful for me...


1. 'bash' does not know 'make'

hello linuxers,
After installing redhat 6.1, I wanted to 'make xconfig' for making
another kernel. However, the bash shell does not recognize 'make'. The
bash shell is installed (bash2 also). $BASH=/usr/bin. I tried to execute
the command 'make xconfig' in '/usr/src/linux' (all sources are loaded).

What can be the problem?
thanks in advance, Mathieu van Echtelt
