This may be true, I never heard of it before.  I do know that this
`append=' approach has been working OK on several machines for me.  I
think it also has been the only way to do it for a long time.

If I recall correctly, you were talking about two different kernel
versions.  The kernel configuration is in
/usr/src/kernel-source-2.0.xx/.config if you installed the debian
kernel-source packages.  If you first configured kernel 2.0.35, you
can transfer the configuration to 2.0.36 if you tell the `make xconfig'
program to read the configuration from ../kernel-source-2.0.35.  If you
don't, you will get the default settings for the 2.0.36 kernel.
