If there is no way in using an <orderedlist>, I'll change it to that. But
because I'd like to use the facilities that docbook offers, mainly because of
self-educational reasons, I'd like to insist on <orderedlist> until someone can
explain it to me what I did wrong.

BTW: The reason why openjade issues that error is, that it's not allowed to do
an "&inclusion" inside a paragraph. But if I cut the wrapping <para>...</para>
inside <listitem>...</listitem>, I'll get the following error:
BLFS/chapter06/fw-appendix.xml:9:37:E: end tag for "listitem" which is not

Which error it's easier to accept until our final release?

Thanks, I'll adopt them for further editing.

Thanks, I like your idea of putting it into an appendix, please name it
"Building a custom Kernel" because IMHO the main information is how to configure
the kernel - not to compile it.

We could give it its own chapter, if everyone agreed that these information were
truely that usefull, and, too, truely that necessary.
The requirement for this point of consense would IMHO be that every chapter had
its table of information regarding the compilation of the kernel - until that
status is reached, I'm happy with your idea of an appendix.

Thanks for your efforts,
