That was it, indeed. Looks like "Custom Kernel" HowTo survived "the
idiot test" by me. One question though: when installing the rpms as the
last step (rpm -ivh kernel-*.rpm), I get "error: can't create
transaction lock on /var/lib/rpm/_db.000". That means I should do it as
root, doesn't it? Perhaps the HowTo could mention this even if it might
be reasonably obvious that only root can install kernels...
