    Sometimes, people unmount the /boot partition to improve security. You probably don't, so you'll have no problems.

    Also, to see an option name in menuconfig, just press "?" over an option. At the top, it will give you something like CONFIG_CRYPTO_ARC4 or whatever you need. Find the ones you're looking for, select them, and recompile.

    I don't see much purpose in modules, frankly. In fact, I think the only modules that I have are the ones you CAN'T compile into the kernel (the ones from Portage).

    So I'd say just compile them right in.

    k ive recompiled the kernel with the crypto options mentioned by emerge wehn i tried to install ipw2200.
    the install went fine, but now when i restart it says some errors about different types of crypto stuff, takes forever to bring up eth0 via dhcp and says netmount was not loaded becasue there were problems starting services...... soo many problems.

    im stumped
