  for the fun of it, i've downloaded the appropriate packages to build
a new kernel under ubuntu 10.04, "git pull"ed to get the absolutely
latest version of the main linux kernel repo, and the build is
chugging away as we speak.

  but what to do with this grub2 thing, of which i have no experience?
i'm used to (under fedora) running:

  # make modules_install
  # make install

after the build is done, and while i suspect that might work here, it
probably(?) won't update the grub2 config file(s).  anyone know what
additional magic is required for grub2?
