Question Compile Kernel for SuSe 9.0 install CDs

Hi All,

I am having difficulties installing SuSE on a new Dell Dimension 8300 that seems to be related to lack of support for the S-ATA harddisk and perhaps other hardware.

I have SuSE 8.2 running on an older machine, and would like to build a kernel with support for the above hardware on it and use that to install SuSE on my new machine.

My question is, what is the best way of going about this? Can I burn a new CD corresponding to the SuSE install CD but having a self-made kernel? I would like to integrate this with YaST if possible.
