GUI kernel config

I have Mandrake 9.0 with 2.4 kernel, this comes with a GUI kernel config, its a nice feature as it details each kernel item. I installed a Mandriva 2009 edition w/2.6.27 kernel and want to add the GUI kernel config, does anyone know of a package to do this

yes I am aware of this, the program I am referring to is not a CLI, but a start menu program under KDE

Don't know of a start menu program but if you open a konsole and type "make xconfig" in the root directory of the kernel source you will get a qt based gui.
