Question 1.) When I have run the "make menuconfig" process, is there a way to view all the settings I have chosen? Or do I have to log all this stuff manually?

Question 2.) How do I query Linux to find out what the current path is, e.g., in windows, I can type "path" to find out what the current path is.

A.1)the '.config' file in /usr/src/linux contains the settings made by 'menuconfig' and tells the makefile what to build.

A.2)The path for what? you can type 'set' but really there's no real reason to mess with it. Symbolic links or changes to make/config files are easier.

the command env will show all environmental variables set, including PATH.
