"/stand/sysinstall" is your friend. I just got done doing the same thing
on three remote 1U Dell machines without any problems. The first time I
recompiled the kernel was to get smp support for the Xeon with
hyperthreading and the second time was to enable quota support.
Here are the two urls that helped me with ports and compiling the
kernel. As long as you are careful to follow the instructions for
compiling the kernel, you should not have any problems.
Sorry I don't have the answers to any of your other questions.
