I haven't compiled anything since my current 2.4.20 but I was able to do
it just by reading the help sections for options. It is a little
painstaking (ie. you enable one option and it opens a menu for many
suboptions ) but it was pretty clear. I think if you have specific
hardware you need supported you should just look for info on that topic,
rather than something comprehensive for all kernel compiles.
