honestly, compiling a kernel is trivial once you build one successfully. the first time will take a few hours to get it right (tops), but by the time you're done, you know exactly what you're doing. i can configure a kernel from scratch in about 20 minutes... and i'm not a hacker or anything... i just know what i need. i'm not saying everyone should build their own kernel, but if you install your distro's sources (with their .config), it's fairly risk free. just back up your old kernel. [OT: if you run lilo, don't forget to run lilo after copying over the new kernel. TONS of people don't realize this their first time]
