       Need was never my motivation. Perhaps more a "how-to" motivation.

      Yes I think my kernel build is right and I used --initrd. My  
problem now lies more in yaboot which only recognizes two operating  
systems Mac Os X and linux. There is no grub boot. So there is no  
option to boot into different kernel versions only operating systems  
But with --initrd does this mean I could disable the original kernel  
in "/boot" and only boot the rt custom kernel?

           Done. If any one replies please reply to pd-ot. I'm a bit  
intimidated by the kernel sites I've seen...
  thought some one might have had same problem.. Sorry
