how to compile kernel

i want to know how you compile your kernel.
And what happens when compiling kernel. (which files are made )

i am using slackware 10 with sata.i
when i make a change it does not run.
says that there is a kernel panic.
for example when i make nfts option active, it does not reboot.
and also ethernet.

i continue these instructions

first i copy config file of sata.i from kernels/sata.i to /usr/scr/linux
with .config name.

make menuconfig

i make active nfts option (not modular)(read only)
and also my ethernet card support.

makedep, make clean, make bzImage

cp arch/i386/boot/bzImage /boot/vmlinux

cp /boot


i try it only with nfts, nothing changes.

i want to know if i made a wrong thing

i am also using win 2000. because of this i cannot use only linux.

and sorry everyone for my bad english.

I've always followed this order

make clean
make mrproper if its 2.6.x
make menuconfig
make bzImage
make modules
make modules_install

copy the bzImage to /boot
mkinitrd -k bzImage -i initrd-test
