Trying kernel 3.0.4

This afternoon, while writing GIM -1-, I thinked why do I have to wait for the next release for trying kernel 3 ? Think then do, it took my lappy -2- about 20 minutes to compile (parallel with 4 core):
wget http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v3.0/linux-3.0.4.tar.bz2
tar jxvf linux-3.0.4.tar.bz2 -C /usr/src/
cd /usr/src/linux-3.0.4/
make menuconfig
make -j4
make modules
make modules_install
cp arch/i386/boot/bzImage /boot/vmlinux-3.0.4

Then edit, the /boot/grub/grub.conf
title Fedora kernel 3
 root (hd0,4)
 kernel /vnlinux-3.0.4 ro root=/dev/sda6 rootfstype=ext4

Reboot the system :D

Got it, I'm writing this with my lappy running on kernel 3.0.4 :D
