typically, you need to have a running Linux system to build the kernel on... but a kernel all by itself is not very useful...

is there a reason why you don't want to use a linux distribution?

well, you can do what you want but to do it, you do need a working linux system to work from... kinda like a chicken and egg situation...

go to http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/ for some more info

good luck,

There is a book by name Running Linux. I do not have that book right now with me. But once I compiled the Kernal based on the steps given in the book. That book is a very good one. You can try it out.\

If you really want to try the hard way without CDs then use diskettes make the boot diskette then the root then the A series etc it should be quite an experience otherwise you need to have a running linux box to compile a kernel
the steps are as follows do them as root
make menuconfig
here you choose what support you would like to include or disable in the kernel
make dep;make clean;make  bzImage the book sreenathk is talking about is from O'Reilly and was written by Welsh and Kaufman
