kernel compile debian way

1. prepare your system

verify you have sufficient diskspace. about 1g or so.
you do not need root. normal user can compile.
you do not need to compile on your own system. another system, with faster cpu, more memory, spare demand, etc can compile your kernel.

using tmpfs

i find my ram usage doesn't go much over 512k. apart from some of my trusty older friends, most of my systems have ample ram left over. how do i make more efficient usage of extra ram?

ram is fast. disk is slow. move more operations from disk to ram, depending on how ram is spare.
