[PLUG] OpenSuse 11.x Kernel Question

Hi All;

Having some fun here with kernel recompilation. I have the default working 2.6.25 kernel booting up just fine. I want to add and delete some options and then recompile. However when I go to /usr/src/linux I find no .config file. So what I'm planning on doing is loading the /boot/config-2.6.25.x-default and using that as my starter config.

Assume I have full x access.

>From /usr/src/linux

cp /boot/config.xxxxxx .config.bak
make mrproper
make (bah)config  ; edit said good known working config then save
(make dep is no longer needed)
make clean
make all
make modules_install install


Sound like a plan? Comments always welcome. 

Or use diff to compare the 2 files, edit and recomplile?

Or just edit the good known config for the options I want to change and recompile?

Playing with Atheros/madwifi stuff and trying to get it to work.
