But understand this now. When you do that your not building against the
newest kernel. Thus you will have inconsistent modulesand run into
problems. It is meant to work by building against the newest kernel. I
don't see the real point in that from a security standpoint in having
reliable kernel modules.

Sorry but in my mind that is pure laziness in doing so. That's the cheap
way out. """I would never introduce that idea to someone new to
Unix/Linux.""" That just a bad way to start off. Do it right the first
time. Thats like squandering an old scsi driver from an older 2.6 kermel
and modprobing it to the new kernel and hope like hell it works!. Theres
a reasing Older Drivers are not in there and I think you know why.
