Rules.make

What exactley is a Rules.make file and how do you configure it?  I was trying to use a makefile setting up isdn4linux, but it wanted a file calle /Rules.make or something like that.  I have no idea what the hell it is, and there's no man page on it, except for 'info make'.  Thanks for all help, and please email solutions to me at Nils.Janson@mail.munich.netsurf.de

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Rules.make is a file that sits on /usr/src/linux
Tweaking it is "dangerous"
if you want to modify your kernel configuration:
cd /usr/src/linux
make config
make dep
make clean
make zImage (or "make zlilo" if you use lilo)
make modules (if you use them)
make modules_install
