I can compile a kernel into a .deb package as described in the

anyone advise me as to how I do this, if possible in relation to the
instructions in the newbiedoc?
Download a kernel tarball from http:// www.kernel.org & open it into a
directory on the compiling system /usr/src/linux ; make sure you have
the correct modutils installed for the kernel version being
compiled.Read and follow exactly the instructions contained in the
tarball for compiling the kernel. Depending on your hardware
requirement, this may be easy ....or not:-)
