Subject: SILLY QUESTION ABOUT UPGRADING

I'm in the process of upgrading my system from Mid January sources
to current sources. As the first step, I downloaded and compiled the
kernel and config sources as of May 30, 1994. The kernel built itself with
no hitches and I thought I was well on my way to a successful upgrade, when
I tried booting from the new kernel. I got a message that said it couldn't
I realize that this is probably due to the off_t changes that
took place some time back, but I don't remember what people were supposed
to do to bring their filesystem into line with the current kernel. As a
first step, I tried changing the boot blocks, but this did not work.
Can someone give me a pointer as to what I must upgrade to run the new
kernel? I would like to make as few changes to my current system as
possible in order to run the new kernel. It has proved to be stable for
months and, in fact, the only reason I'm upgrading is to take advantage of
the if_el driver.
Here is my configuration file for a 486DX2 (66 MHZ) 16MB of memory, BT445s
SCSI controller, two 16550a UARTS, and a cp30540 Conner SCSI drive.
Any comments, pointers as to where I should go next would be greatly
