Jeremy, I did compile with make-kpkg for Hardy 8.04, resp. 64 Studio 3.0
- beta, based on Hardy and it did work.

If you should have got the time to do it, would you please try to test,
if there won't be an initrd for you too, building on Lucid or later
version of Ubuntu?

Copy and paste should be ok, if you allow HTML for received messages ;).

wget ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.6/linux-
tar xvjf linux-
mv linux- linux-
ln -s linux- linux
cd linux
mv ../patch- ../linux
bunzip2 patch-
patch -p1 < patch-

If uname -r is 2.6.32-25-preempt, than ...
cp /boot/config-$(uname -r) .config
make oldconfig
... should need to push enter all the times only.

I guess it's needed to disable staging on any machine, so ...
gedit .config
# CONFIG_STAGING is not set
... and then
make oldconfig
There should be nothing to do when running make oldconfig.

make-kpkg clean
make-kpkg --rootcmd fakeroot --initrd kernel-image kernel-headers

or perhaps

fakeroot first.
