My attempts to compile a (5.1-RELEASE) kernel on a very old PC take around 5 hours (of compile time), while a much faster machine sits by idle. It would be great to be able to compile the kernel on the faster machine and transfer it to the older machine.

Would I be correct in thinking that the simplest way to do this would be to execute the compile AND the install on the fast PC, then copy the /boot/kernel directory from the fast PC to the old PC? I realise I would need to rename /boot/kernel.old back to /boot/kernel on the fast PC so it would boot again.

Or is there a better way without disrupting /boot on the fast PC?
