Sorry, but: If you want to package a linux kernel, you should _know_
the few basic names and concepts. Otherwise you'll make live hard for
people using your package. Knowledge of System.map is a _must_, also
knowing of initrd and similar concepts. If not, don't waste your and
our time with trying to make a package. (The same is of course valid
for any other package: Who wants to package kde must know to what the
term "mouse" refers to in connection with computers.)
