Kernal Compile Basics


I'm very new to Linux. Is there a document/how-to that gives some information on when I need to recompile my kernel and how exactly I do that?

(why do you call it a "kernal"?? i never know where this spelling mistake comes from??)

anyway, google gives a HUG amount of useful docuemntation: http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=kernel+2.6+compile

we have a number of documents here to, for example http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...icle&artid=170
