    This is getting to the down and dirty area. You can give kernel 
directives in the menu.lst file after the words that load the kernel. 
The menu.lst file is a flat ascii file you can change with sudo joe 
editor that I use.

    I think you better Google menu.lst, kernel directives and so should 
I. A few years ago I used one to load something like a proper video 
driver in Fedora.
