Thanks for responding both Urs and Graham. I have another question
along with this one too.

I have a friend who compiled Kernel 2.2.12 and 2.2.13 on my box but
in turn they do not work. Are we missing something important or in
the compiling process.

We are wondering if it is us, the bootx, or other things. I will try
the idea about the video driver.
