As a point of information to all, both the bpck and bpck6 modules
appear to be included in the Mandrake standard kernels. I'm running
Mandrake 9.2 and have both the 2.4.22-10 and 2.4.22-21 kernels
installed here and the appropriate modules are included in each
kernel. A peek at another hard disk reveals that those modules are
also included in Mandrake 9.1, kernels 2.4.21-0.22 and 2.4.21-0.25.
