go to click on book, or this link :-D go to compiling the kernel

# mv /vmlinuz /vmlinuz.old
# cat arch/i386/boot/zImage > /vmlinuz
# mv /boot/ /boot/
# cp /boot/

should be changed to:

# mv /boot/vmlinuz /boot/vmlinuz.old
# cat arch/i386/boot/zImage > /boot/vmlinuz
# mv /boot/ /boot/
# cp /boot/

keep this in mind at other points where you need to specify it

also this has changed for 2.6.x, but not enough that you can't figure it out (make dep is gone, thats about it)

when compiling your kernel go default on anything you are clueless about, but try to read thehelp descriptions a lot. you need toi have a good understanding/knowledge of what hardware is in your computer.
