I'm thinking we should include the option of not having a initrd, and just having a bzImage.

I like that idea too.

This guide directly starts with using dracut. I think it's better to rewrite it with generic ideas how to build custom kernel, without initrd, and then with different initramfs creation tools.

i propose we move this article to Kernel/Manual i propose we sign our discussion statements ala

build useflag?

Why, in advanced section, is the "build" useflag set?

When I equery u vanilla-sources for instance, it is said:

   !!internal use only!! DO NOT SET THIS FLAG YOURSELF!, used for creating build images and the
   first half of bootstrapping [make stage1
