Hi Ryan

You have a line in your kernel config:

device		umass		# Disks/Mass storage - Requires scbus and da

But scbus and da are commented out.

I'm not sure it will entirely cure the problem. Also it's advisable
to call a modified kernel something other than GENERIC and change
the ident line accordingly.

Follow up with the errors you get if it still won't build.

Thanks, John.
