First off I'd like to say thanks for all the hard work you guys put in on these packs.


I just tried installing RC6, but I got a kernel panic on the first boot, I had to boot off of an installation disc and restore my previous RC5 backup. When installing I didn't see an option to choose what kind of installation I wanted, so I just hit the return key and continued on my way. You san see my signature for my system info.

I've just upgraded to the new extra folder using the guide from the above post and everything is working normaly. I would however say that whilst running the edptool the first stage where you select which model you have the laptop crashed and would not re-boot. Luckily I still had the old leppy cd which I booted from and ran the edptool again. Now everything is groovy.

Thanks again for all the hard work guys.
