1) 'make mrproprer' is intended to clean the linux source directories from what remains from a former compilation, and thus erase the former configuration files of the kernel source.

2) On "how to" build kernel, first read the README file in the root directory of the kernel source and read existing "how-to".

3) Knowing that the kernels shipped with fedora are patched (you know that by the 'fc9' token included in fedora's kernel name), if you configure a new kernel "from scratch" you will probably screw up your system.

4) At least you should begin your kernel's configuration re-using the configuration of the fedora kernel you already have. Rename it .config and put it in the root directory of your new kernel source, then issue 'make oldconfig' not "make menuconfig" or whatever.

5) Nobody should give you instructions by pictures as it would be the guarantee that you do not understand what you are doing. Furthermore there are *thousands* of possible configuration options.
