Re: compiling a kernel

hey joris,

here's the first three steps i recommend:

# apt-get install kernel-source-2.4.20
# apt-get install kernel-package
$ cd /usr/share/doc/kernel-package

(if you're running woody, you want kernel-source-2.4.18 i believe)

debian really treats you well with kernel-compiling utilities and
documentation.  search back in this mailing list for make-kpkg, there've
been several howto's (and good kernel newbie doc links) posted...

good luck
