This week's star is another oldie-but-goodie -- tseliot's "HOWTO: Kernel Compilation for Newbies."

This is one of the longest-running kernel compilation threads in the forum, and it comes from a highly repuatable and knowledgable member. It's a great place to start learning about the core element of your Ubuntu system, and how to modify it to your liking.

Thanks to alloftheabove for nominating it.
