Question Kernel Problems


Hi, I am new to linux and I am wondering how you can edit, modify and otherwise customize the kernel in redhat 9 because I pretty much got into linux for its full customizability and i have the source code but am, wondering about a good resource of commands used for the kernel and how you edit it, and proceed to patch it. as well i am wondering what kinds of things you can change by customizing a kernel so any references to a good resource on kernels would be great as well as any direct help would also be appreciated.

Thanks In Advance,
Mike

The linux documentation project is always one of the first places to look.

You also could look at the file README in the kernel source.
