I am doing kernel programming by making changes to kernel. what my problem is that how can i keep same linux kernel 2.4.24 with 2 copies. one is working on Fedora core 1 and another is modified version. what problem i face is that if i compile either one its /lib/modules/2.4.24 will get overwritten and each time i have to compile the kernel which i want to work on? is there any way to solve this issue?
