Just give the command in the parenthesis (ncurses must be installed) or try other ways:

make config: Asks for configuration options one by one. When you make a mistake you have to restart.
make xconfig: A front-end for configuration. You can select the configuration options here also.

Just issue the command and select your drivers; they could be in the child menu items so just select the relevant topic.

Type make config, not ./make config.
