In a look at mock, it seems to be for srpms builds. I'm looking at building a 
full kernel from source for use in the g4l project that I am the current 
maintainer of. Mostly the kernels are on the CD to allow users to boot and do 
disk imaging of the machines. The kernels can also be placed in grub and 
grub4dos as well, but are actually separate from the machine they are build
