Hmm... for ISO-current of 20060122, settle already have this option.

Kernel sources are in usr/src/kernel directory on installation CD, so you
can copy linux-2.4.32.tar.bz2 and linux-2.4.32-ow1.tar.gz to /usr/src on
your fresh-installed system and run:

cd /usr/src
tar -xjf linux-2.4.32.tar.bz2
tar -xzf linux-2.4.32-ow1.tar.gz
mv linux-2.4.32-ow1/* linux-2.4.32/
rmdir linux-2.4.32-ow1
ln -sf linux-2.4.32 linux
cd linux
patch -p1 < linux-2.4.32-ow1.diff

After that you can run `make menuconfig` to configure kernel and
`make bzImage` to build it.

No ideas - possibly, someone else will be able to help you.
