My patches to kernel 2.6.14-1.1644_FC4

My patches to kernel 2.6.14-1.1644_FC4

That is a patch to allow:

SiS SATA 0182 support at the startup of Fedora Core 4 (I do not have an IDE hard drive to boot my Linux)

1. Get and install the kernel source that applies:

2. Apply the above mentioned patches on the Remarks:

3. Include the module [sata_sis] to the initial image:

mkinitrd -f --with=sata_sis --with=libata --with=scsi_mod /boot/initrd-2.6.14-1.1644_FC4.img 2.6.14-1.1644_FC4 # normal i686
#mkinitrd -f --with=sata_sis --with=libata --with=scsi_mod /boot/initrd-2.6.14-1.1644_FC4smp.img 2.6.14-1.1644_FC4smp # i686 SMP

Please always address to my hardware, os and kernel patching general procedures before posting a question.
