If you can only build a 2.6 kernel on a system running a 2.6 kernel, 
then don't you have a chicken and egg problem?  And more relevant, how 
do I manage to get a 2.6 kernel running to build on?  I can't really 
take the computer down to boot it to, say, a bootable CD, and I'm not 
really prepared to try to cross compile, in addition to building a 
testing version.
