Configureing my kernel

I have slack9 on my server. I want to recompile its kernel. The only problem is that i dont have X installed. I really do not want to sit for 2 hours typing yes and no on the command line. What i want to know is if there is a program like xconfig that is for windows. A program that i can start on windows and creat a .config file which would then be put in the kernel source directory. Another option that would work would be an html or web interface.

If you have any ideas, please let me know.


P.s. I know the easyst thing todo would be to go to another linux machine, but i would really like to find a windows option. thanks!

install ncurses and ncurses-devel. Then run make menuconfig. Much better than make config, and an elegant solution for X window-less machine

...also if you don't feel like getting up to go to the keyboard (or maybe there is no monitor...) you can use SSH into it (with the windows PUTTY client) and run it from a windows box...
