That was the next logical step I took...I'm downloading a package now.

There was something romantic about building a vanilla kernel, taking it
from it's orignal bz2 archive and transforming it into a nice new shiny

Now, as I have learned, it's just a PITA. Hopefully I can still patch it
with suspend2 stuff.

At least I'm less wary of make-kpkg. In fact, I may shortly be loving
