Kernin is a menu-driven script to help the user install a Linux kernel. It does everything from extracting the kernel from its tarball through automatically changing the LILO configuration. Kernin is mainly aimed at inexperienced users that have no prior knowledge of kernel installation, but it can also help experienced Linux users save time when installing a kernel. Note that kernin is only compatible with LILO at the moment. As of July 18, 2005, this program is no longer under active development.
