    Just for clarification if your using SuSE 8.2 your defualt kernel is 2.4

    If you just bought Suse 9.0 you have a choice at install of the 2.4 production version kernel or a 2.6 beta version. There's no 2.8 at this time.

    also Thnx for the info so far.

    Why do i love linux so much to put myself through the punishment of learning it, in so much as staying up nights missing work and enjoying the punishment. especialy when what you figured out works flawlessly. with no screens of death!

    On to compiling my first kernal.......this should take a while.. hope it works on the first try.

    Any tips?

    Don't overlook support for the simple things...namely your chipset. I've done that...it's annoying and embarrassing (but also a good learning experience).
