I did my first new kernel today and it worked. What I don't
understand is why it is taking the same amount of memory as the
previous one.

When I do dmesg the amount of available memory are the same as with
the previous kernel. The parts that I commented were mostly HD
controllers and ethernet cards. Wasn't that supposed to reduce the
amount of memory in use?

I am also confused about:
>machine		"i386"
>cpu		"I386_CPU"
>cpu		"I486_CPU"
>cpu		"I586_CPU"

The explanation in LINT mentions that the machine specifies the cpu
one is compiling for. Can I change "i386" to "i486"?
