Hi Robert,
One of your lug talks inspired me to compile my own kernel. That was way 
back when lilo was in vogue. These days it's grub and grub2, and they 
just don't work as easily.  (IMHO)

I think it would be useful to have a page in your course explaining 
exactly how to move a compiled kernel to the /boot and setup grub or 
grub2 to access it.
