rebuilding kernel the Fedora way ...

Hi there,

I'd like to rebuild the Fedora Core 3 kernel the "Fedora" way.

Please get me right. I do know how to build kernels so I'm not interested in general instructions on this.

I installed the src-rpm for the kernel (2.6.9). What I get is the plain kernel source and a lot of patches and other files.

How is this supposed to be rebuilt after changing the configuration so that I get the original kernel with all Fedora patches and Fedora extensions incorporated ??

Is it supposed to be done by using rpmbuild ? Are there Fedora (RedHat)-specific instructions on how to do this ?

Thank you
