I could not get udev-081 to compile which was what was suggested in the 
book. I just took the most recent version and it compiled and installed 
cleanly. I didn't have a chance to try to boot from it actually because 
of my kernel snaffoo. I will keep this in mind, but I will try udev-105 
first. If I can't boot, I will go back to 094. Thanks for the heads up.

After I get it to compile, I will let you know. I don't use dhcp due to 
my Linux box being on my personal router. I find hard coded ip's to be 
just easier for port forwarding so I can access my machine from elsewhere.

glibc because I really didn't know the difference when I started this 
and it was implied from the book that it was the "less broken" of the 2 
libraries. If a stable version of the book happens to come about, then I 
will research it more and decide which would be better for me.
