    Default compiling kernel for an old machine with a new one

    what can i do to compile a kernel on a computer for an older one?

    this is the scenario:

    i have a pIII with red hat 9 and a pentium-s 133 with "Tiny distro with
    kernel 2.2.6"


    this was my first try:

    compile the kernel 2.2.25 with EXTRAVERSION=-posy (on PIII)

    copy the bzImage in the /boot (from PIII to P133)
    copy the modules in /lib/2.2.25-posy (from PIII to P133)

    update lilo.conf (on P133)
    ----------
    when i reboot with the new kernel on P133 and run umode -r the command say
    that there is a kernel version 2.2.6
    why?


    excuse my bad english!
