Compiling a multi-boot kernel.

Well, I found the program mbchk and it told me that do not have multi-boot
headers in my standard built kernel. According to the documentation that
I've found out in the wild
(http://www.openbg.net/sto/os/xml/grub.html#multiboot) -- which is pretty
much it. I have to add some code that they post to kernel.c and create a
file called start.asm. Problem is: kernel.c does not exist, and I'm getting
kind of flummoxed.

I need some help. I have to believe there is an easy way to do this that I
am missing. It does not make sense to me that I would have to be a developer
to recompile a kernel. Could someone please let me know what the specific
steps to compile and boot a kernel with grub as opposed to lilo? If there is
no simple way, then I'm going to have to scrap grub and go back to lilo.

Thank you for your time,
