init.rd creation


Hi , I always used redhat which "make install" set everything up when I compiled a new kernel. I switched to Debian now and "make install" copies everything to my /boot directory except the initrd image. I ve been searching around on kernel compiling but they dont say how to create or where it is located if make install put it somewhere. Kinda lost on this as you can tell. So just need to know the command to create it or if its made the directory it is in.

installing a new kernel is quite easy in debian.
1.cd to the source.
2. make menconfig.
3. make-kpkg which creates a kernel image package (.deb) which
is installable using dpkg -i command.

what I have written is not the exact thing to do but rather Very general
guidelines. For exact commands google for "compiling kernel debian way".

Hope this helps.
