Well, apparantely, most of the 1.3.x kernels up until 1.3.25 (I think) have kernel profiling turned on by default. This makes your kernel bigger by about 500k. You might want to get a newer 1.3 (1.3.27 is the latest). ObCarHack: Did this one today: One of the windows my 1975 Plymouth Valiant (the driver's of course) decided that it would not roll up any more. So, after a couple of weeks of this (it hadn't rained), I decided to fix it. It turned out that all the tines had broken off the little plastic grommett that held the glass in and it had fallen out. So, after calling the Chrysler dealership and finding out that they didn't have the part (being 20 years old and all), and that they might not be able to get it, I decided to use something else. So, a nut and bolt and a couple of washers later, it was better than new.
