for bananafish:

OK, so you've got your kernel source. Make a ~/linux directory, and then
symlink ~/linux/ as /usr/src/linux/. apt-get install
kernel-headers-2.4.x (these are the development files you need to
compile the kernel).

NOw, uncompresss the kernel source. If you uncompress it in your
homedir, it should create a ~/linux directory. If it is a tar.gz, you'll
need to use tar -xvvzf and if it's a bz2 (which I recommend) you'll use
bunzip2 to uncompress it.

THen, go into your source directory, and type make menuconfig.

WHat happens?
