  1. make menuconfig? which processor should i select if my processor is pentium D

    Hi,
    I am configuring linux kernel 2.4.22, on a linux machine
    running ubuntu
    detailed information
    Linux version 2.6.20-15-generic
    (gcc version 4.1.2 (Ubuntu 4.1.2-0ubuntu4)) #2 SMP Sun Apr 15 07:36:31
    UTC 2007 (Ubuntu 2.6.20-15.27-generic)

    Here is my cpuinfo
    OUTPUT OF cat /proc/cpuinfo
    processor : 0
    vendor_id : GenuineIntel
    cpu family : 15
    model : 6
    model name : Intel(R) Pentium(R) D CPU 3.40GHz
    stepping : 8
    cpu MHz : 3391.611

    ds_cpl
    bogomips : 6804.55
    clflush size : 64

    while running make menuconfig
    i get few options for selecting processor type
    -> 486
    ->586/6x86
    -> pentium III

    What processor are you going to run on? If it's on an antique 486,
    pick 486. And so on.

    I assume you mean 2.6.22!
    Select Pentium 4 if you are going to use it on the machine you
    described.
    An easier way would be to copy "/boot/config-2.6.20-15.27-generic "
    file to the root of your linux tree and rename it to .config
    eg:
    cp -v /boot/config- 2.6.20-15.27-generic /usr/src/linux/.config

    Then do make menuconfig.
    This will use the .config file as the basis for your 2.6.22 kernel.

    its working fine, i resued the existing config file
    I have made the kernel now i would to make a bootable CD image which
    can be hosted on a vmware player,anybody have idea about
    ->what all are needed for making a bootable image like
    i have vmlinuz, initrd image, bzImage
    How to make a bootable image from this, all the above are
    required?? or still more are required??
    ->I have idea about how to make a iso image, but i dont know
    logically what components need to be
    present in a bootable linux iso image


    Thank you,
