Hello Everyone,

I successfully compiled the kernel and was able to make an iso image.  For
this I would like to thank everyone who helped me.  I didn't realize that
compiling the Linux kernel was a fairly easy process.

I do have bad news however.  The image still didn't work after the
recompile.  After doing some investigating with Intel, I discovered that the
motherboard was custom made for MPC.  It does use the Marvell Yukon adapter
however this board currently does not have Linux support.

I tried flashing the BIOS with the standard BIOS provided by Intel but it
would not let me.  Needless to say we will not buy this specific computer
from MPC anymore.

Even though I couldn't get the onboard NIC working, I still see this as a
great learning experience.  Once again I would like to thank everyone for
their help.  In the future I will not be afraid of compiling a new kernel.
Speaking of which, I see that 2.6.12 is out.

The Intel Marvell Yukon was already present (as "sk98lin, SysKonnect
SK-NET Gigabit Et hernet SK-98xx driver"), however I updated
cast-o-matic anyways, in order to take into account some other "new"
cards (Broadcomm 4400 10/100, ...). The new cast-o-matic now also has
the module name in the label, rather than only the description.
