Unpack the kernel sources like usual. Then get yourself the newest
stable i2c and lm_sensors tarballs from
http://www2.lm-sensors.nu/~lm78/download.html. It's the 2.6.1 for both
packages. Unpack them and read the manual. This will tell you how to
patch your kernel sources. Do the i2c patch first and then the
lm_sensors patch. If you are interested in a fresh bttv version, get the
tarball from http://bytesex.org/bttv/. There are also patches for the
2.4.x kernels available. There's a patch for btaudio too. Patch the
NOW you can configure and build it. Don't deactivate i2c. It is needed
for both, lm_sensors and bttv.

BTW: I did it myself yesterday. It worked fine.
