Hi prince910,

The linux Kernel Rebuild Guide
http://www.digitalhermit.com/linux/Kernel-Build-HOWTO.html

I strongly recommend that you install a new kernel (even if the version is the same) instead of modifying an existing one. That way you would have a working kernel to boot into incase something goes wrong.

Cheers!

Hello!
Download the kernel source RPM and build it.
a --force may be nessecary.

Then, cd to /usr/src/linux
(should be a symlink).
type "make menuconfig"
Customize your heart out, save and make!
