Use modules. If you're using `make menuconfig',
type M at the more esoteric drivers. Make sure
you have enough features to get booted up and
reading your root partition - don't make things
like your default HD interface (IDE, SCSI) into
modules - but do so for most other things, like
PPP and parallel port interfaces and so on.

No idea, and I doubt it. Isn't it a LILO problem?
