2.6 Upgrade Tip

When attempting to upgrade to kernel 2.6, make sure to read the README for module-init-tools before installing. I suggest following the instructions for installing in /sbin. That way, your 2.6 kernel can have the utilities it needs while a 2.4 kernel can still have the ones it needs. Believe me, it will save a lot of headaches. RTFM? Whodathunkit?

Yeesh, I just found something REALLY stupid that I did. It helps when you recompile a kernel to actually move it to the /boot partition so it can be loaded. Kids, don't update kernels late at night.
