Here's what I did:
1. Install from CD (6.0-RELEASE)
2. Got latest kernel src with sysinstall
3. cd /usr/src/sys/i386/conf
4. Created my own config file (LAPTOP)
5. Did a /usr/sbin/config LAPTOP
6. Moved into compile directory (/usr/src/sys/i386/compile/LAPTOP)
7. Did 'make depend'
At this point it failed...
This machine has run Linux for the past few months compiling various things.
