I use Linux RedHat 7.3 with 2.4.18-3 kernel. I have compiled kernel for supporting NTSF(read only). But I don't know how to load new kernel into work! I copied the vmlinux and System.map to /boot but nothing happen. The old kernel still be used when system boot.
How can I solve this problem!

Hi nguyen_vantuananh,

you will have to modify your bootloader (grub or lilo) to be able to boot into the new kernel

You need to edit either /boot/grub/grub.conf or /boot/lilo.conf  and add an entry for your new kernel - its straightforward enough - just copy the entry for your old kernel  (obviously changing the kernelname etc) For lilo you will need to run the command "lilo" after you have edited lilo.conf.

Instead of recompiling your kernel, why not just use the module at http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/ instead?  The directions on that site are quite straight forward.  I have used these modules myself on many occasions.
