  2. now, the tools are designed to work with the "aoe" driver for Linux
  3. 2.6 kernels. Support for 2.4 kernels and other operating systems
  4. would be helpful, but we're starting with 2.6 support.
  5. If you need to configure the software, look at the variables at the
  6. top of the Makefile. The defaults should work for most people. When
  7. using the defaults there's only one step to configure and install the
  8. aoetools software and documentation:
  9. make install
  10. You'll need sufficient permissions to install in the default locations

  13. further details.
