get the source from suse or use ftpmirror from www.kernel.org

you wanna configure your X? or configure the kernel with the X-interface? running "make xconfig" in an terminal will give you a graphical interface for your kernel configuration.
or X: isn't there a tool (yast) to config XFree86? i know of xf86config (or something like that).

sl mritch.
