    To compile a kernel someone should be able to run correctly make. Don't
    you think so? Also my girlfriend, who never saw a Unix system before,
    after a couple days spended reading during free time some documentation
    and help files (4 hours in two days I think) has been able to compile and
    install a new kernel.

    This is an old discussion. I hope it will never be. (just my own 2 cents).
