    compiling the linux 2.6.1 kernel

    Ok I've done these steps:
    make xconfig;
    make dep;  //but it says that I didn't need to do this
    make bzImage;
    make modules;
    make modules_install;
    are these correct and what do I do next. I want to keep my current kernel if something goes wrong.

    Thanx for reading.

    After that you should copy arch/i386/boot/bzImage to /boot. You should name it vmlinuz-2.6.1 or something like that. After that, you need to update the boot loader configuration. If your boot loader is LILO, you also need to run lilo to recreate the boot sector; GRUB doesn't need that. After that, it's good to go.
