Oh, by the way, if I try to manage the Kernel from the KDE Control Center,
it complains, "No hardware architecture was specified!  Perhaps the Kernel
source code is not installed on this system, or the path to the Kernel
sources is entered incorrectly."  The displayed path to the Kernel sources
is /usr/src/linux.  I have the kernel source in
/usr/src/linux/kernel-source-2.4.27.  The hardware architecture drop-down is
blank, and cannot be changed.

You have to install the development files for ncurses in order to use
menuconfig. The package is called libncurses5-dev. Always install the
development package when you're going to compile something.
Wish is provided by the tk package (apt-cache search tk), then you'll
have to install the Qt libraries I guess.
Hope this helps.
