    so can I just manually edit kernel and then make && make modules_install
    then cp over to boot
    Yes, you can. You will need to remove the initrd line, unless you will be creating an init ramdisk as well.

    A more automated way would be

    very interesting reads. Thanks for the links guys. I personally am also pretty happy with the standard kernel but I always like to have the ability to do some tinkering if I so choose and now I have that option under arch. Thanks again.
    All right, brain. You don't like me and I don't like you, but let's just do this and I can get back to killing you with beer. All New Users Read This!!! If you have a grub problem please look at GRUB MANUAL

    I dunno if the wiki is down or something, but I couldn't get into it atm...

    However I compile the kernel myself on Arch too, I download the sources, untar them to /usr/src, "ln -s /usr/src/linux-* /usr/src/linux", and then a final "cd /usr/src/linux && make menuconfig bzImage modules modules_install" and install the kernel manually.

    IIRC "cd /usr/src/linux && make menuconfig bzImage modules modules_install install" should work too.
