Yes, although using "make menuconfig" or "make xconfig" will probably be easier.

thnks,just checking
Its just one little tiny parameter in need to change

its a recompile of a kernel built with menuconfig.

Using menuconfig I have been through the device block sections a half dozen times now and can't find any reference to my ide chipset ?!!

However I found it in .config using grep.

Anyway thnks for your help.
