Yes, but the point isn't to make it painless, it's to make sure I can
keep in practice.  I've had jobs over the last 9 years doing Linux
kernel development/analysis, and at one point I was so out of practice
I had to relearn how to build the kernel all over again.  /That/ was
painful.

BTW, since you mentioned it, which is better - the RH NTFS module(s)
or the fuse implementation?  Maybe I'll look for another excuse to
build a modified kernel if the latter....

Thanks.
