Kernel RPM HowTo ??

Anyone know of a Kernel RPM HowTO ???

I have sucessfuly built a kernal (I needed frame buffering or TV out on a Matrox G400)..

Any way, I would like to roll this in to an rpm, for easy of instalation in the future. I've seen a lot of HowTo's on building the kernal, and most state that you can package it in an RPM..
but warn you that you need to insure you get the moduals, and the ramdisk image.

And what about an added line in grub ??

I'm on a RH9 box, using grub.

has anyone on this list done this before, or know of a howto somewhere ??

Thanks for you help,

probably just start by looking at a general 'make-a-rpm' howto first:
