Happy to abide the the list preferences... in 30 years of using lists
I've never heard that it mattered. ;-)

As for the -rt kernel, sure it gets all the stuff it needs...but, after
I put added the -rt kernel my video drivers don't work, my wireless
doesn't work, my lan connection doesn't work. (As explained in my
earlier posts.)

I now after much research and list discussions understand that there may
be modules that need to be added to the -rt kernel, which I mistakenly
hoped would be sussed out by the -rt install package automatically,
since they already reside on the machine.

If there is a way to tell the -rt install to do this, I would be very
interested. Failing that, when I get back to work on this project I need
to figure out how to figure out what was added to the generic kernel and
then figure out how to add them to the -rt. At that point I'll probably
be asking a lot more questions...

Thanks for all the help!
