[Newlug] January Meeting

I will host a small NEWLUG get together on January 27th at the Infinity
Technology office - Located in the 43 Industrial park, GB. This meeting
will not consist of a presentation but rather allow us an opportunity to
get face to face and meet one another. We can discuss future meetings
and review the facility I have available. Meeting will start at 6PM and
go untill 8ish. Please email me if you can attend so I can estimate the
number of attendees.
If anyone has items of interest to show we do have a projector and I can
use my laptop. We also have internet access available - sorry we will be
meeting in a conference room, there is not a pc available for everyone
like a lab environment.

Now the next problem was that when I rebooted, I lost my settings that I had just entered. Turns out I wasn't telling the system to load the tulip module. I forgot the command to do this (my instructions are away from me right now) but it is in the gentoo installation instructions under the kernel section. I also had to change my net config so I used dhcp by default (this is also in the gentoo installation instructions under the network configuration section). I want that pc to have a static IP Address, and use dhcp, but that'll be another weekend project to conquer.

Where can I find out what to build into the kernel and what to build as kernel modules? I'm not too sure about doing anything with the kernel and would like to know a whole lot, but don't know where to look. It looks like gentoo gives a barebones kernel config by default. How does one find out what to enable for the kernel build?
