Interesting - good to read about the Mandrake side of it. (I am tempted)

As a 'far from expert' Debian user it was fine for me.
I installed the required modules package 'module-init-tools'
Compile and use seemed to go smoothly.

Regarding CD Burning: I don't think XCDRoast is designed for 2.6 yet so
I use cdrecord
cdrecord dev=/dev/hdd:0,0,0 speed=12 -eject -data -v file.iso
md5sum /dev/hdd && md5sum file.iso
I made a few coasters & later found help from Klaus:

I still have lots of learning to do with perfecting the kernel .config
file choices (among other things).
