compile kernel on one computer for use on another
I will be installing Slackware 9.1 on a Dell with twin CPU's tomorrow and know that I will have to recompile the bare.i kernel to add SMP. My question is this, Since I know that the bare.i kernel works on his system (just slow) can I go ahead and use make xconfig to enable smp, save it and make the bzImage to use on his machine at install time tomorrow? If so, what files do I need to make sure I have on the CD so that when Slack asks me what kernel to use and I point it to the cd, it will have everything it needs?
Thanks in advance
