to), or finding some way to back out the kernel changes and continue on (if
it ain't too hard).

Some of the other errors are
modprob: can't locate module net-pf-4 (then -pf-5)

I am booting off of floppy, if that matters.  I can't figure out how to get
Linux to recognize the Bios overlay for larg hard drives and still boot.
