thx for your comments.. and basically that is what i'm trying to do but i
receive an error upon attempting to make the kernel.
this is the error i get..
pmac_pci.c: In function `pmac_pci_enable_device_hook':
pmac_pci.c:550: `PCI_DEVICE_ID_APPLE_KL_USB` undeclared
know i've seen this error posted here..
and i even have looked at kfukui's config file and ours are near
identical. does anyone have any info on what is causing my problem above.
