Re: [vox-tech] i've lost the ability to compile a kernel/Modem suggestio

Re: [vox-tech] i've lost the ability to compile a kernel/Modem suggestions?



Questions from a newbie...
How often should one compile a kernel?  I assume whenever there is a new 
one out, but would the existing kernel ever need to be recompiled, sans 
any new changes that might be done?
(I may have just answered my own question, but any input is appreciated)

also.....
I was at Frye's looking for a new dialup modem to use on my Red Hat 
7.2/Win98SE dual boot box.  Any suggestions?  Are there internal 
controller-based models, or are externals the only way to go...  If 
external, can more than one 'puter work through the same modem?

Thanks,
Joey
