Recently I have successfully installed NetBSD 1.2.1 on my PC and the
procedure is painless.  Thanks for your effort!

Now I would like to rebuild the kernel.  I have downloaded all the
source distribution and ready to go for it  but I don't find procedure
to safely and correctly  perform this task.  My quesitions are:

1. Do I need to write a script to install all the source files or is
there existing script doing that.  (cat set_name.?? | gunzip | tar xfp -
will do one distribution file as described in INSTALL)

2. After all the distribution files installed,  what is the procedure to
make the kernel and install it?

Thanks a lot for help!
