So, I did a 'make mrproper' and now when I do 'make bzImage' I am presented with SEVERAL options. Is there any documentation that expands on these questions, so I can assure that I answer them correctly.
Well basically what you did was wipe out your kernel configuration. If you want an easier way out do
it is ncurses driven and it has help section to every option for kernel configuration, configure kernel to your particular needs and hardware specifications and then create a compressed kernel image by doing
make the modules
and install modules (this is where most people make a mistake by not doing so)
and then copy or move arch/i386/boot/bzImage to /boot and update your boot manager configuration, in the case of LILO don't forget to re-run lilo to write changes to the boot sector.
