GUI for compiling the kernel


Years ago when I first tried Linux Mandrake (1999) i remember compiling my own kernel. i seem to remember it was something to do with stream lining its size because it resides in ram. Ive recently got back to linux and everything is going well.

Im now at the point where I want to take a look at the kernel. I seem to remember using a rather friendly GUI before. How do i get there in Mandriva 2007 free addition?

Any good kernel compiling links would be most welcome. thanks in advance.

inside the kernel sources you can use either make menuconfig which is ncurses based or try make xconfig which it qt based and has lots of helpful information
