actually it's better to just do a "make menuconfig" and start from scratch with the new kernel.........that way you can go thru ALL the menu options and
learn what is new and also how the menu options have been restructured.....

i'm going downgrading from 2.6 to 2.4, though.

So ???.
Start with a clean install - if you're feeling really masochistic, you could diff the two .config's.
Dunno why though - the list would be huge.
