This section contains descriptions of selected kernel configuration options
make config) which are not listed in the configuration section.
Most device drivers are not listed here.
Normal floppy disk support - is exactly that. You may wish to read
over the file
drivers/block/README.fd; this is especially
important for IBM Thinkpad users.
XT harddisk support - if you want to use that 8 bit XT
controller collecting dust in the corner.
PCI bios support - if you have PCI, you may want to give this a
shot; be careful, though, as some old PCI motherboards could crash with this
option. More information about the PCI bus under linux is found in the
Kernel support for ELF binaries - ELF is an effort to allow binaries
to span architectures and operating systems; linux seems is headed
in that direction and so you most likely want this.
Set version information on all symbols for modules - in the past,
kernel modules were recompiled along with every new kernel. If you say
y, it will be possible to use modules compiled under a different
README.modules for more details.
Networking options are described in the NET-3-HOWTO (or NET-something-HOWTO).
