Why you must recompile the kernel?, the current dist

If you really need to do that:
You must compile the Kernel with the hardware of the
laptop, there is not need to include your desktop
kernel-package in woody dist, can help you to achive
the .deb package easily.
I also recomend you that have a look to:
Is a very good reference.

I have a laptop P2 300mhz, 128mb ram and a desktop box
thats 2ghz,512mb ram.
The question is that could i use my 2ghz machine to
make and compile a
kernel, then package it up into a .deb and send it to
the laptop and
install it and it work ?
Would i need any extras ? i know i would have to
the hardware for
the laptop, but would i need to include the hardware
for the 2ghz or
just the laptop ?

I need to compile the kernel as i havnt been able to get the sound card
working on my laptop.
The laptop is a omnibook 4150A, the B version is supported quite well
from what i have seen on the internet, but i havnt had much luck with
this laptop on anything other than mandrake, so i am assuming that if i
recompile the kernel i can add in what ever mandrake used for my sound card.
from a few sites they say its a CS4282 but everything i have tried so
far hasnt worked so i am hopping this compile will sort it :)
I wont include the desktop hardware i was just curious as it's using the
desktop to compile so i thought it might be needed :)
