OK, I'm sure Thomas will see this message and deal with it, it sounds 
like the wget script in the profile is not correct. Thank you for the 
details :-)

Well, you don't even have to let the profile try to build a kernel if 
you don't want to (just don't mark that package in chapter 8 to be 
executed), and in that case the contents of the config file won't 
matter. Personally I don't let the chapter 8 stuff run at all, because I 
have my systems already set up in other ways than the book, so just 
running ch5/6/7/9 works fine for me.

Yes, much better, I appreciate the willingness to try <G>.

Before some of the more hard-core listers complain, you may want to 
think about trimming down your signature (and not repeating it)...
