>From the binary CD (1.3 1 is the label on mine) install one of the
two kernel-source packages ( I use 2.0.29, some concerns have been
expressed about 2.0.30.  I do not know what they are.)  Make life
easier for yourself and install the kernel-package.  This package
helps a lot in making a custom kernel.  Read its README file in
/usr/doc/kernel-package after installing to see what else to do.

Good Luck!
