the intrd.img file on it, and then mount it you'll find a modules.cgz file.

that has it, but i have a few things i'm unsure of, and if someone could

could someone peek and tell me what setup and options i should use?
second, i'll need a specific version number for the module built into
it. the kernel i'm running 2.2.5 is the same, but the boot disk has
something like BOOT#4 or BOOT#14 appended to it. any idea how to
