Quick q on this one:

I have several configs now to trace problems with acpi sleeping modes on this 
Inspiron laptop. On -stable I used to be able to boot /kernel.mychoice. Now 
everything is stored in /boot/kernel.

boot kernel.mychoice
now search for: /boot/kernel.mychoice/kernel ?

And, does how does makeoptions KERNEL=kernel.mychoice affect this, since sys/
conf/NOTES says:
#makeoptions    KERNEL=foo              #Build kernel "foo" and install "/foo"

which seems to be the old way of doing things.
