The kernel

Then you start to think of compiling a complete linux system, the first thing you think about is the kernel. Which i - ofcourse - downloaded from

Ofcouse i didn't just compile it, i made my own configuration. Some special things:
The used kernel was the just-released 2.6.0, which has changed to 2.6.4, and probably will change in near future to the newest version.

After compiling, this created a ca. 1 MB bzImage.

Since i already compiled kernels before, and kernel compilation can be called the most user-friendly as compiling gets, i got absolutely no problems over here.
