Choose your poison ;-).

The file that needs to change is .config in the top-level directory of
the source tree of the kernel you are building.  If you prefer, you
can edit that file manually.  Alternate methods of editing the file
    make config
    make menuconfig
    make xconfig

The details I listed are the option names as they appear in the
.config file (which ends up being /boot/config-<kernel version> if you
build the kernel with make-kpkg) and as they appear in the "Help"
text.  I do not know the English prose equivalent that is displayed in
menuconfig or xconfig, but I _think_ the comments I included
correspond to the section headings.

If you include ide-cd as 'y' instead of 'm' then you need to tell it
not to grab the device you want ide-scsi to pick up later.  Some
docs/howtos talk about this.  (that's what I was referring to when I
said I don't use any parameters specific to that)


Even youths grow tired and weary,
    and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the Lord
    will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
    they will run and not grow weary,
    they will walk and not be faint.
        Isaiah 40:31
