How do you create your own slakware installation disks?

I was wondering if there is a way to create your own slakware
installation disks with your own kernel on them.  I'm curious, because I
would like to do a NFS slakware installation but the Slakware 3.2
installation disks don't have drivers for my network card installed.
So, I was wondering if there's a way for me to compile a kernel for my
computer and then create a slakware installation disk with that kernel
instead of the downloadable ones.  Thanks!

1. Create my own installation diskette - how?

I try to create my own installation diskette (kern.flp) for FreeBSD 4.0
because the generic kernel hasen't the SCSI driver compiled in that I

I simply copy the kern.flp diskette that you can create from the floppy,
mount it and substitute kernel.gz. This works so far, the kernel loads
correctly and I then insert the mfsroot.flp diskette as I would during
an 'ordinary' install. Unfortunately, the kernel tries to mount an
inexistent device to root and halts the system.

I suppose that I have to tell the kernel that mfs is to be used as root
device. I already included 'options mfs_root' and the mfs file system
into the kernel, but that doesn't help.

Any suggestions what exactly needs to be done?
