yes, many things, also pcmcia you were compiling for :)

try to copy the old config file (/boot/config-bf24 - I can't remember
the name of the file but look for something similar) in the kernel
source tree?

cp /boot/config-* /usr/src/linux/.config

so you have a functional configuration. You can start removing
unnecessary options later on with 'make menuconfig'
