I'm attempting to compile and upgrade the kernel on a RH 6.1 system from 2.2.12 to 2.2.14 in order to enable IP masquerading. I did manage to get a working config file using 'make config' but I don't think I have all the options set right. Rather than having to run through that really long text config program everytime I want to change an option I'd much rather use xconfig. The problem is that when running 'make xconfig' many options that I need are either not on the various options screens or they're there but grayed out and unselectable. Neither the IP Masquerading or Kernel How To goes into any depth on xconfig. Can someone point me to any How To's or FAQ's that could give me instructions or help on this?
1. Backup the present kernel which is in "/boot" for most systems. You can tell where it is by looking at "/etc/lilo.conf" . sometimes lilo.conf will point to a link file. Trace the link file and backup
