The easiest way is to use the checkinstall program (on the SuSE disks).
It creates a bare bones .spec file (an rpm build config file) and builds
rpms from source for you. It can even create Slackware tgz files and
Debian debs.

Other than that, I can recommend the book "Maximum RPM" which covers all
the gory details of the .spec file, pre/post/install/remove scripts,
dependencies, etc.

Best Regards,
Keith
