The kernel you build will be specific to your system, so without knowing exactly what hardware you have (IO controllers, chipsets, graphics cards, network cards, hard disks, what filesystems you use) we can't tell you what you need to include.

If you're getting errors that the kernel is too big and you've been doing 'make zImage', try using 'make bzImage' instead.
