i installed a kernel source 2.4.24 on my redhat linux 9 machine which have kernel 2.4.20.
when i start 'make menuconfig' and do fine tune for my new kernel 2.4.24 and compile it.
it compiled successfuly.i then boot it. but while booting it gives iptables module error and
display that service FAILED. same thing for USB devices. the USB file sytem starts successfully
but then next it gives USB mouse, hdd, keyboard initialization FAILED.
how can i solve this. the kernel boots then very well with remaining services configured.
Also when i check lsmod it gives very less module info 1 or 2 .but when i boot to my default installation it gives me 15 to 20 entries with lsmod command. how can i made it same for my newly configured kernel?
