If I'm updating my kernel, I simply copy the running config to the new source tree, and rebuild the kernel:

Code:
cd /usr/src/linux-$VERSION
gzip -cd < /proc/config.gz > .config
make

In case of new install (where I don't have an old conf to copy from), I run "make menuconfig" and activate the following

Code:
Device Drivers  --->
    [M] Sound card support  --->
        [M] Advanced Linux Sound Architecture  --->

    File systems
    (whatever FS I'll need)

The default settings should be sane enough to let you boot into the kernel (unless you have some really exotic hardware).

Once I'm sure the kernel can boot, I'll go back into the source directory, run "make menuconfig" again, and go through ALL THE ENTRIES, and decide wether I want them or not. I'll try to disable as much things as I want, while ensuring I can still boot the kernel from time to time.

Once everything is stripped down, and that my kernel boots, I'm done with it, and will only compile new modules as needed, then run "depmod" to map the freshly created module.

In case I want to enable wifi support, I'll try sacrifying a virgin or two, just in case.
