What exactley is a Rules.make file and how do you configure it?  I was trying to use a makefile setting up isdn4linux, but it wanted a file calle /Rules.make or something like that.  I have no idea what the hell it is, and there's no man page on it, except for 'info make'.  Thanks for all help, and please email solutions to me at Nils.Janson@mail.munich.netsurf.de

Rules.make is a file that sits on /usr/src/linux
Tweaking it is "dangerous"
if you want to modify your kernel configuration:
cd /usr/src/linux
make config
make dep
make clean
make zImage (or "make zlilo" if you use lilo)
make modules (if you use them)
make modules_install
