    How do you post your menuconfig in a forum?

    You run "cat /boot/grub/menu.lst" in a terminal and then post the output in a forum between code tags.

    Code:
    default 0
    timeout 30
    splashimage=(hd0,0)/boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz
    
    #title Gentoo Linux 3.0.6-gentoo
    root (hd0,0)
    kernel /boot/kernel-3.0.6-gentoo root=/dev/sda3
    
    #title bizImage
    root (hd0,0)
    kernel /boot/bizImage root=/dev/sda3
    
    
    #title Gentoo Linux 3.0.6 (rescue)
    root (hd0,0) 
    kernel /boot/kernel-3.0.6-gentoo root=/dev/sda3 init=/bin/bb
    
    #initrd /boot/initramfs-genkernel-x86-2.6.24-gentoo-r5
    
    # vim:ft=conf:
    (chroot) sysresccd lin
    Thanks I did not know how to do this, but what also need to know is, how to post the kernel changes I made after invoking make menuconfig. This is the first time I use bb code. I hope I did it right.

    I assume you mean the configuration from "make menuconfig" when building the kernel. The file that is being edited by that is ".config" and is in the root of your linux source (i.e. the same directory that you ran "make menuconfig".)

    I have to apologise. I thought I saw menu.lst, but I have just realised that you meant menuconfig. You can find that in the directory where you built the kernel.
