Don't use a 2.4.x config as the basis for a 2.6.x kernel .
Build your first 2.6.x kernel config using "make menuconfig", "make
config", make xconfig" or similar, /then/ you can use that config in
the future as a base for other 2.6.x kernels with "make oldconfig".

First of all, this shouldn't result in problems like the one he
reported (see my other mail).

And I'm surprised you are saying this. I'd have expected that running
"make oldconfig" with a 2.4 kernel should give him a working

Can you explain where you'd expect problems so that we can fix them?
