Compiling kernel


I have a doubt about kernel compilation. Two days ago I compiled by hand and it crashed during the boot process. The configuration was
made by hand, starting from the default configuration and perhaps I missed

Since I had to restore my old slackware bakcup to recover some files and
information, I got a copy of the already running (at slack)
kernel configuration that is finely tuned for my desktop... my question
is: can I simply load such kernel configuration in the 'make xconfig' that
is working (same desktop and cpu configuration) and compile it with
debian? I mean, it is the same computer and hardware, the same kernel
version, etc.

More specific: Does Debian require a special kernel configuration due to
its libraries/configuration or am I able just to load the kernel config
and install it now on Debian? In theory it should work with any
distribution, as far as I know it should match only the hardware...
