LinuxQuestions is not the place to turn to when you're looking for a step by step guide. Those can be found in abundant numbers on the internet. When you encounter trouble following a guide, that's when you turn to LQ for answers and solutions. That being said, have a look at this site, plenty of guides there: Kernel Compilation, step by step..

Kind regards,
