Then copy the kernel configuration of the current kernel into the kernel source directory...

Thank you,

Well, what happened when you ran this command?
Code:
cp /boot/config-`uname -r` .config

When you run this command:
Quote:
cp /boot/config-`uname -r` .config
you need to be in the same directory as your .config file, or specify the full path to the .config file (e.g. cp /boot/config-`uname -r` <path to .config>/.config).

I apologize for being this "GREEN" but how can I find out which directory has the .config file?

If you followed the tutorial correctly, it should be in /usr/src/linux-source-2.6.31. So you should do:
Code:
cd /usr/src/linux-source-2.6.31
Become root (if you aren't already):

Code:
sudo su
Then do your copy:

Code:
cp /boot/config-`uname -r` .config
That should get you past this step. Post back with any problems. Good luck!
