installing kernel.org kernels

I have managed to install 2.6.19 from kernel.org, and its running right
now, however I have a few questions.
1. During the boot, I saw a message go by indicating that TUX was not
supported by this kernel. Frankly, I hadn't figured out what it as for
when it starts about 60 copies of itself at boot time that AFAIK, have
never done anything constructive for *me* that I know of. Can someone
comment about this for my edification? And if it does serve a usefull
purpose, how can I re-enable it in a make xconfig?
2. Trying to do this as a user rather than root because you all decry my
running everything as root. To that end I have broken my 'makeit' script
in two, doing all the building as myself and leaving the installation to
a separate script that must be run as root. This seems to work, but is
there a way to run as the common user and still have rights to install
the modules in /lib/modules/$kernelver, and to install the pieces and
links in /boot that are required to achieve a working boot?
Many thanks for any tutorial urls and answers I get on these 2 subjects.
