I've been using some of the 2.6.0 test kernels for a bit now. I haven't had the time to upgrade to the release version, but I suppose I should.

Your HowTo is pretty close. If you just fix the problems I pointed out earlier, it should be fine.

But to be honest, the best HowTo for kernel compiling is DaOne's posts that I linked to earlier. I follow it religously and it never fails me. You might want to read there and see how yours compares.

Oh, one additional thing. Frequently you'll find that the kernel source code is in a .tar.bz2 file. You can untar and unzip in a single step with tar -xjvf linux-2.6.0.tar.bz2.

yes, but if you are limited on download speed, ie dialup, then the bz2 images are smaller and you may want to include that in your instructions.

for tar.gz use #tar xfvz
for tar.bz2 use #tar xfvj

and the arguements can be in any order...
