    Okay, I went back to the textbooks and I know a little bit more about
    what I am doing now. But I am trying to modify the ppSCSI patch for the
    2.4.18 kernel, and I am not sure where to put the new additions in the
    /drivers/scsi/Makefile. None of the context lines match up, so I was
    just going to put it in at the end. Any suggestions otherwise? Does it
    make much difference? Thanks!
