Are you on about something like the kern.config file, you get on BSD Unix-like systems? There isn't really anything like that in Linux, since it doesn't use a compiled, monolithic kernel. You can stop some Kernel modules from loading, by putting them in your blacklists files, and so on. I do that with an ancient Toshiba Satellite, that I use as an improvised KVM, that know I'll never use the Firewire ports on, for instance.

Otherwise, what exactly did you have in mind?

Say what ???.
You'd better not let Linus know that - he'll be mightily pissed off.
