Idiot's guide to building a kernel:

Assuming kernel 2.4.19:

  • make dep modules modules_install bzImage
  • cp /boot/
  • cp arch/i386/boot/bzImage /boot/bzImage-2.4.19
  • Modify grub.conf or lilo.conf and then run grub/lilo
  • Reboot
If you want to have a custom name for your kernel, edit the Makefile and change the EXTRAVERSION setting.

Idiot's guide to RedHat 9 Kernel:

  1. cd /usr/src/linux-2.4.20-8
  2. make mrproper
  3. make menuconfig / make xconfig / copy config from configs dir /make oldconfig
  4. make bzImage
  5. make modules

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
