 +Compiling the ext2 and ext3 file systems into the kernel, rather than modules makes sense for now.  I am uncertain if one could ever compile ext2 as a module and still boot due to the initramfs.\\
 +The above options are not the only thing you will need to get your nodes up and booting.\\
 +You will need motherboard specific modules, for the computer you will be booting. ​ An easy way to get a list is to boot a gentoo install cd, or another system that you trust. ​ Once in the shell, get a list of loaded modules. ( lsmod )  Write down the list in use.  Then deselect any modules you do not need, making sure you have selected the modules that you do need.  ​
