Default kernel compilation: help required

Hi,

I have two queries.


1) When I install fedora core 6 on my machine, even though I set all the options the source code for linux kernel does not get installed. How can I do that.

2) I have downloaded linux-2.6.27.7.tar from kernel.org and now I want to compile it on my fedora core 6, plz tell me the step by step procedure for successfull compilation. I am new to this so I will require your help, I appreciate in advance.

Fedora Core 6 is quite old, so I guess the repositories don't exist anymore.

Default Kernel modules size

I have compile linux kernel version 2.6.28 , when i see the " .ko " files after the kernel was compiled the size of the ".ko" file is very large compared files created from the installation by cd . Is their any way to reduce the size .

I assume it has to do with the dependency Cd installation manages this dependency than when we compile the kernel . Is there a way to reduce the the size of the kernel object files ? .
