Thanks, Martin. Yes, I have looked at the website you refer to, and tried =
use it. And I have the book to which you refer. The trouble is, that for=
the basic stuff they are simply above my head. Stephen gives more=20
explanation and more and clearer instructions.
I shall certainly avail myself of what the book and =20
http://kernel-handbook.alioth.debian.org/ say - but shall also use Stephen'=
site, which I find very useful. So much of the documentation from which on=
has to work is old - but that doesn't make it useless. And anyway, I think=
that Stephen updates his site, so it is not outdated.
But thank you for the recommendations. Not only might I not have known the=
but future readers of the archive might not know of them.
