I was up all night and did remarkably well on my own...I did get all my
patches up to 2.2.9...
installed...and I did check as modules....the epst......etc.stuff..

I actually did get a total compile...but it kept choking on NFS...

When I began looking in some of the directories...I began to see rej....and
orig.....etc...all the
different looked a mess.........sigh

So this morning I reinstall the 2.2.5-15 source tree and have decided to try
it by doing
exactly as you said...I'll download the 2.2.9 source tree...then do exactly as
you said...

I actually did get it going last night .......sort of.....but I was only doing

insmod ppscsi
and insmod epst

but I couldn't mount it because I wasn't doing insmod scsi and insmod

I'll let everyone know how its going...this is exiting to me I'm HAVING to
learn so much..
and this Syquest thing is the LAST on my list...

I got the Intellimouse wheel...scrolling...
WITH the wacom stylus....simultaneously...
I got the linear raid going...
I got the new 2.2.5.....kernel installed and running with my own
compile....(thank you thank you)

After this...project I'm going to go for the gold...and get my
SCSI Envisions {UMAX} scanner...going.....supposedly thie 2.2.5 kernel has
support the the
UDS-IS-11 scsi card that is ACUTALLY a DTC-3181.......(Domex-DTCTECK)

That would be great......also..

Thanks again....I'm anxious to start working....
