sorry, just catching up on all this. a typical "how to build and
reboot a kernel" talk normally takes, what, 20 minutes? i can easily
bend that to go either way -- talk faster/cover less, or stretch it
out a bit with a few more goodies. it's an eminently flexible topic.
my plan is simply to hook a laptop to the projector with the kernel
source ready to go, and walk through the config, build, see the
results, install and reboot. nothing earth-shattering, perhaps just
to rid the beginners of the fear in trying it the first time.
