    Syntax help?


    Hey all, i am trying to compile my first kernel. I am running Fedora 8. I am trying to copy my existing kernel config file into my new source directory for the compiler to use as a starting point. Here is the code I am having trouble with. (porbably a simple syntax problem, but I am fairly new to this.
    [
    Code:
    root@localhost /]# cp -f /boot/config-2.6.23.1-49.fc8 /usr/src/linux/.config
    cp: cannot create regular file `/usr/src/linux/.config': No such file or directory
    Thanks for putting up with me...
