    Put together a "How To"


    I would like some input on this please. I have a kernel compile how to for Debian (Etch & Lenny). I tested it over and over and it works great for me but I'm not sure if this site needs a kernel how to since there's only about 40,000 of them on the net these days.So I have not posted it yet.Does anyone want to look at it to see if it's worth posting or needs improvement ? I do not have a kernel patch section and I mention LILo where most other how to's only mention grub. Any ideas welcome.

    I see no problem with it. If seeing your work can help someone else who might need guidance with the same compile, I say go for it.

    I'm still giving it some thought.My "How To" is similar to so many others Just not sure if it's worth posting. Even so, I guess it would save people from Googling if I did post.

    I don't think Internet is to full for another howto. Post it. Who knows? Maybe it's helpful, maybe not. I've had a lot of help from howto's that people just posted on a forum because they ran into an issue, solved it and made their notes public that way.

    Not only that, but people googling for a howto in Debian kernel compilation, or are googling for some specific part you address... Provided your howto is technically correct you should post it IMHO.

    Would it be any use to me, as a Vector/Slackware user?
