/Making a definite exception to not answering these, and suggesting google.
.1 Download some kernel source (the debian one you are running for least effort) which should be installed in /usr/src/linux-version.
2. cd into the kernel top sopurce dir, &
cp /boot/config-version .config
There's video stuff in
power management and ACPI / ACPI dupport
device drivers / multimedia support and the submenus. Look at something like this
