Description Landon Curt Noll 2001-10-20 18:12:59 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.78 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.19-7.0.10 i686)

Description of problem:
The kernel documentation makes several references to the
file /etc/conf.modules.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.cd /usr/src/linux/Documentation
2.grep conf.modules * 2>/dev/null

Actual Results:  grep shows multiple references to the obsolete file

Expected Results:  The only references to ./etc/conf.modules should be
those that
mention that is is obsolete and that /etc/modules.conf should be
used instead.

It looks like this documentation problem has been corrected in RH7.3.  
I'm setting the resolution to WORKSFORME
