    It doesn't hurt to have this on a resume if you are looking for a sysadmin job.

    Not to discourage you from taking on this project but are you sure you want to tackle a "roll your own" distro project without any guides? At the least, check out the Linux From Scratch project.

    Try installing the update and if it doesn't work, simply boot back into your older kernel.

    As someone who compiles kernel's himself, I tend to break things alot ;).
