kernel config howto

There is a thread in lfs-support where a newbie used the default
settings and the result failed to boot (surprise :-O).  Every kernel
config howto I have read always goes something like:

make menuconfig
because of lack space needed to walk through this, you are on your own
make dep

To my way of thinking, the time to figure out what config options are
needed is before 'make menuconfig'.  A start would be a hardware
checklist, support of foo options, [other examples here].  The result
would be an easy to read file that serves as a companion for walking
through the menuconfig process.

Is there such a HOWTO?
