    I have started to put together my own kernels but it does take a long time for compiles so I would like to use distcc over the 3 computers I have on the net.

    I use the command below to build and package my kernels and would like to continue doing so.

    make-kpkg clean && make-kpkg --initrd --append-to-version=.sly kernel_image modules_image clean && make-kpkg --initrd --append-to-version=.sly kernel_image modules_image
    There are 3 computers that I would use
    Machine the kernels are for - sunfire v210 8mb both ways
    Home server - athlon 3200 7mb/s adsl
    Backup server - celeron 1.8hz 22mb/s adsl

    1) How do I use the kpkg system with distcc and what ports would I need to open to ensure this would work.

    2) Would I actually get any benefit from this?
