The other polar extreme is to turn off all the stuff you
*think* you don't need, compile the kernel, then wonder
why it doesn't boot; which of the hundred options you
touched made the difference.

Fortunately the help is very helpful, and you can opt
for making just the module if you are uncertain....

In my latest effort, with, I did manage to get
rid of a lot of options. I think especially getting
rid of the legacy ISA, EISA, etc. stuff has made the
kernel boot much faster. And replacing hotplug with udev
has also vastly sped up the init process.
