Ok, I'll try this.  Two important questions:

1. At what point can I customize the kernel,
(in my case, I need to add ReiserFS support)?  Should I
run "make dep" etc. afterwards, or if not what command
comes after I edit the kernel's .config?

2. Do I need to be root for anything other than copying
in the images (which I've been doing with regular
"cp") to /boot?  So far, I've not been running as
root until I need it.

Thanks!!  Greg
