Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Those are all the ones I've heard of, and they're all basically front-ends for modifying the .config file using the documentation provided with the kernel source (in other words, none is going to give you a particular advantage at changing things over another other than a different way of presenting the choices).
I know that they all do the same way, but there are differences between them. Such as, some are more intuitive then others, the way that they organize the .config file also differs. I think you guys believe that I have no idea what they all do, but in fact, I do. I was just trying to find one that I liked the best, I suppose I should have worded my question differently.
Well now, let's not bash him completely, this forum always tends to be one of the friendlier ones out there... his question was just phrased in a bit of a confusing way.

I did a quick search through my kernel documentation and didn't find more than the obvious, commonly-used ones.
