With the new 2.6.15+ kernels, there's a new mini-config option that might be
of great use for initial kernels. There's also an allnoconfig and other auto
options that could use a mention in the book to help simplify kernel
configuration, which is a very difficult task.
I tried the mini-config set-up, but the kernel build failed at kernel/pci, so
it's not fool-proof yet, but it is something to watch out for. Maybe a basic
mini-config that builds could be suggested for the initial kernel, to get
people going. Then they can dig deeper into the kernel config at their
leisure once they have a booting system to start with?
Just a suggestion.
