Question Custom Fedora 15 kernel rebuild help required.

I currently have a piece of target hardware running a custom Fedora 15 kernel. I would like to upgrade this device to Fedora 16. I can't connect the device to the Internet and it only has a small SSD so I can't upgrade it directly.
My desktop machine is running Fedora 16 and I have the .src.rpm file for the custom kernel available. Can anyone help provide me with instructions on how to generate a Fedora 16 kernel rpm based on the custom kernel that I can later deploy to the target hardware.

Hi John,

Unfortunately it is not under my control. I have been asked to upgrade to Fedora 16.
