I built a new kernel but during the 'make modules' and 'make modules
install' part somewhere the process went automatic. Too automatic: the boot loader got edited and changed, the files (System.map, initrd, etc) got copied and of course
the system didn't boot. I'd like to do the steps (editing grub, copying files) all by myself as I did before so I know what I'm doing. I had success that way before so I'm wondering if somewhere in a new kernel makefile or somewhere else these automation functions are built in and if I can turn them off.
