I beleive there is some docs in the kernel source mention the requirements to compile the kernel. Never really checked but assumed they would be there. What dependencies errors are you having?

I've got all the requirements, but I keep on finding dependencies for some of the requirements. I have a dial-up connection, so its frustrating to have to go back online to find those dependencies. I'm hoping I can find a complete listing so I can just download all the deps at one time and not have to find them while compiling the kernel. Some of the requirements I can't find online or it goes by another name that i don't know. Thanks anyway.
