Compiling linux kernel

It has been a long time, since I did some kernel compilation.
I was planning to compile a new kernel and play around with it over the week end. So I downloaded linux- I am running linux on virtual machine, as I don't have other options:-)

Because of some other activities/issues I could not achieve what I had planned. I could not compile and install it yesterday. Today I started off again and managed to get it compiled and installed.
Earlier I used to create initrd image using mkinitrd. mkinitrd is no more available in ubuntu and I had to use the following command to create the initramfs image,

update-initramfs -c –k

Now my Ubuntu 9.10 is running kernel:-)

I badly want to do some hacking, but I have to go to sleep now:-(
Let's see what can be done, in the coming days..
