Thanks Marcel.  I'll let you know if the no flags or permissions bit helps.

With regards to version of the kernel, I have a concern there.  Yast is 
telling me that I have version 2.6.5-7.147 of the kernel installed, but 
version 2.6.4-52 of the source installed.  This is after updating both of 
them.  So I think my source tree doesn't match the binary kernel I have 
installed.  An easy fix would be to compile my own kernel, but then I'm sure 
things will get messed up when I do an update later on.

Thanks for the support, I'll let you know how it goes...
