I am sorry but I don't seem to quite understand the process you have done. Instead of installing the drivers after upgrading the kernel installing the 'Debian' way, you have used 'dselect' to install the kernel image and then you rebuilt using the 'idepci' file? Could you please explaing the process a bit more detailed? Thanks a lot"!
