You don't need to install the kernel image disk sets.  However, you *do* 
need to install the Linux kernel source disk set.  It includes all the 
header files under /usr/include/linux that you'll need for most everything.

Installing the kernel is a very good idea anyway.  You can cut down about 
150k of the kernel just by removing support for things you don't need.  
And once it's installed, you can just remove everything but the header 
files anyway.
