Default Re: nForce 3 SATA vs Silicon Image SATA

I would think you would be better off by starting
with the config file provided by Fedora as
/boot/config-<kernelversion>. This should
give you a kernel that is conigured similar to
the one you are running now.

Then, after applying the 2.6.8-rc2 patch, run
"make oldconfig". This will prompt you for
inclusion of all new drivers. There you will be
prompted to include the sata-nv driver.
The forcedeth driver should already be
included, as it existed before.

Once you boot off your new kernel, kudzu will
recognize the previously unused hardware
and configure sata-nv and forcedeth for you.

Having started with Linux some 10 years ago
with kernel version 0.99 (I think), I'm not
depending on howto's for kernel building
anymore, so I can't help you with that, sorry.

Oh, and all this is based on the assumption you
are using Fedora Core 2 for x86_64 architectures.
