SHIT! i forgot to mention that i DID recompile the kernel to 126.96.36.199, i used my the same .config as the original kernel that backtrack came with.
(i just wanted dual core cpu support)
(fyi, when i type in usname -r (or whatever that command is) it does tell me that i am using 188.8.131.52.)
I think your the only one that is recognizing the problem!!! YEA!! i am getting close to making this work
In my experience using the .config from a older kernel does not work to good. When I built the 184.108.40.206 kernel with the old .config my sh%t was f$%ked.
