    1. Just don't tamper with the existing kernel, nor the lilo config entry to it. Compiling a kernel is pretty straightforward, and there is a good guide here:

    If you want to know a little more about the kernel, troubleshoot it etc, look here:


    For the other stuff, look into /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 or inet2. I can't remeber which one the correct one is, but I'm shure you will that out.

    Good luck!
