Fwd: Help with compiling a kernel

Subject: Help with compiling a kernel

Hey guys,

	Im having a bit of trouble compiling my own kernel for my PW500a (miata).
The default kernel (2.2.18) does not have support for the onboard sound card,
and I wanted to compile a newer kernel to add support for this.  I have run
into a few problems along the way.  I have included the kernel config as an
attachment just incase it helps.  I have experience with compiling kernels on
x86 architectures, but I haven't had much success with doing it on alpha yet.

The first time I compiled a new kernel (2.2.19) I was getting IRQ conflicts
between the ide channels and some other device (the text would scroll by too
fast to see what the other device was, but i would assume it was the
soundcard, as its the only hardware that I added support for).  The IRQ
conflicts prevented the computer from booting up successfully, so I tried
again compiling IDE support as a module.

Right now it seems that everything works except the keyboard.  For some
 reason the keyboard is not being recognised, and keypresses do nothing. 
 Other than that the system seems to work fine, X loads and sits at kdm.  I
 cant do a dmesg to see what hardware was or was not detected, so I'm having
 to just assume that everything else is working.

My questions are these:
1.  Is there any reason _not_ to use a 2.4 kernel, or is there a specific
release in the 2.4 branch that is known to work well with aplha.
2.  Does anyone know why the keyboard is not being recognised (its a PS/2,
works fine in alphabios and milo, once kernel boots it stops working)
3.  Coule anyone else with a miata post their kernel config (for any 2.2 or
2.4 release, just so I can take a look at the options they did and did not
use).

Thanks in advance,
