Re: mixing and matching vanilla kernel & Fedora

If you're going to do this then you should also run `make oldconfig` in the root of your kernel's source tree. This will adapt an old kernel config to the new kernel and ask you about anything new. Note that this is good for 2.6.x --> 2.6.y and 2.4.x --> 2.4.y kernel changes, and not 2.4 -> 2.6, since they have different configuration file formats.
