just make sure you compile your kernel with ALLL the modules
and you're done w/ hardware drivers ... how to detect new
devices that is plugged in is a separate issue ( anaconda )
knoppix has a good hw detect...

mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/knoopix-cd
dd if=/mnt/knoppix-cd of=/tmp/k.iso
mount -t iso9660 -o ro,loop=/dev/loop0 /tmp/k.iso /mnt/test
cp -par /lib/modules/2.4.26 /mnt/test/lib/modules/2.4.26
cp /boot/*2.4.26* /mnt/test/boot
- make a boot image of vmlinux-2.4.26
- a floppy boot image is simplest
- or use isolinux
- replace knoppix boot image w/ your vmlinux-2.4.26 boot floppy image
( fun part -- to make it standalone cdrom )
reburn your new cdrom from your updated /mnt/test image
( all over simplified steps )
