As I'd considered earlier, I've reinstalled Linux on my computer from
scratch. Since installing RedHat 7.3 from my CDs crashes mysteriously
when it tries to unmount the second disc, I installed from RedHat 7.2
discs, upgraded to RedHat 7.3, copied my /etc directory back to the /
partition, and did and "apt-get dist upgrade" to upgrade to the current
levels. I managed to make this a bit less tedious by having saved the
apt information and RPMs to a partition that was not affected by the

However, I now have one quandary: I'm using an external USB audio
interface, and the module for it did not pop into existence when I did
the install (nor did I expect that it would). From what I understand, I
would have to reconfigure and rebuild the kernel to create it. Is there
some way to do this through apt-get, or do I have to do the
configure-and-make dance as before?
