Different kernel during fresh install?

Well, I am wondering if it is possible to install a differnent kernel than 2.4.21 during the install process? I would like to use 2.6-test11 and not mess with the 2.4. series at all. If there is a way please let me know.

Also, I would like to create a bootable Arch linux base install cd. I can leave the one the way it is I just want to be able to boot with the Arch base cd with the 2.6-test11kernel. If there is a way to just replace the kernel on the cd please let me know. I am willing to do whatever it takes. smile

The main reason for this is I use sata and I found the 2.6-test11 seems to work with it. But booting with 2.4.21 is more of a pain than anything for me. If I could make both of the above changes it would make my life and linux world so much easier and nicer.

Any replies are greatly appreciated.

You could probably not install a kernel, then when you finish with the curses installation program chroot into the system and pacman -S wget, then wget
Then compile it. When you're done, type exit to get back to the console, and then reboot.

Geez, what's with you people and chroot... there are other ways to do things.  Check out pacman's -r arg.

Building it yourself through the install is basically what the installer does when it gives you that option.  Even then it'd still be faster than a gentoo install wink
