    the readme file that comes with it is pretty straightforward.

    in short, run these commands:

    make xconfig <---- generally set as much as possible to modules
    make bzImage
    make modules
    make modules_install
    (if u use lilo to boot u can use this 1 to set up a boot option etc)
    make install

    A little more in depth

    Download the file
    copy to /usr/src
    tar xvjf linux-2.6.0.bla
    cd linux 2.6.0
    make xconfig or make menuconfig (whichever you prefer)
    exit and save config
    make bzImage (or vmlinuz) modules modules_install
    cp arch/i386/boot/bzImage (or vmlinuz) /boot
    if you use lilo rerun the lilo command.
    ln -sf /usr/src/linux2.6.0 /usr/src/linux
    reboot.

    Hellmasker, does make install copy the bzImage to the boot directory?

    yep, make isntall copies the bzImage file to /boot/bzImage-2.6.0-1blahblah and make initrd files, system maps, etc. and it puts a entry in lilo.conf are runs lilo all by itself.
