Hi Marc...:)

Just build your kernel and do a make release... just takes a little time
then run the script /usr/src/release/i386/mkisoimages.sh
--- READ the info about this in the shell script so you
build what you want and you can even set up drives to be mounted
... YOU can build a bootable CD with your custom kernel...
Then burn this iso image file to a CD and it will boot your kernel...
everytime...
