Hey, Falko has written this document: http://www.howtoforge.com/kernel_compilation_fedora and i really like it but it's not the real fedora way. with that documentation you still have to manually edit grub and you still have to do mkinitrd. So my request is a new document that does it exactly the fedora way so that you end with a kernel rpm that does the grub and mkinitrd for you. i think it would be best to edit that document with something like: go to page # for manual stuff (mkinitrd, grub) or go to page # to create a kernel rpm (with mkinitrd and grub in it). Mark.
