Could someone point me to some documentation on the proceedure
for building a new linux kernel?

I need info like; prerequisite rpms, Guidance on what options to
choose in menuconfig,  How to implement the new kernel, Do I
need to modify any config files.

The documentation that I have found for intel-linux has so far
has been similar but not quite the same. I haven't really looked
for the "how to build a kernel for MIPS" docs yet.

I tried to build one on my intel-linux box for practice. It
didn't go well.
