Hi Ronaldo,

 You can override this default by specifying KERNELS=kernelname. For example, you can make two kernels - linux-2.6-xen0 and linux-2.6-xenU...

   To make these two kernels, simply specify

   KERNELS="linux-2.6-xen0 linux-2.6-xenU"

   in the make command line.

 To rebuild a kernel with a modified config:

    # make linux-2.6-xen-config CONFIGMODE=menuconfig     (or xconfig)
    # make linux-2.6-xen-build
    # make linux-2.6-xen-install

 These information is on the README file...   ;-)

Hi Thiago,

Thanks for the links, but I have another question:
I tried to compile the kernel that is withing this Xen version using:

make kernels

and it gives me as an option to configure the kernel through
"oldconfig". I want to configure it using "menuconfig".

How do I do that?
Is there any: make kernels CONFIGMODE=menuconfig ?

Thanks in advance.
