Sorry to follow up my note, but to save any friendly soul the unneeded
effort: I am making some progress with the Friendly Manual, and I think my
H/W setup problems arise from not having reserved the appropriate
interrupts for the ISA/EISA section of my motherboard, so the system
expects and may use them for PCI devices. AMI BIOS SETUP has a page for
that, which I had missed.

With regard to modules installation, I will look into
/src/linux/Documentation/modules.txt, and go from there. I would still
appreciate comments about module selection, insertion and removal. I have
always taken these a bit too much for granted. Thanks.
