Oh, that's amusing. (Almost as amusing as the RELEASE-NOTES file. After I
cleaned up an editing glitch to get it to display right I tried to follow
the instructions - to the letter. (Can you tell I am feeling cranky today?
Working through a migraine is difficult. {^_-}) Anyway - what does this do?
(remembering I am in /usr/src/redhat/SPECS at the time.)

cd /usr/src/redhat/BUILD/kernel-<version> /usr/src/

I presume "mv" was meant instead of "cd".

That is followed by "mv linux-<version> /usr/src/" Um, there is no
"linux*" file in SPECS, guys. I presume something like this is meant:

ln -s kernel-<version> linux-<version>

or this:

mv kernel-<version> linux-<version>

Then the rest of the lines are more or less back to making sense.)
