When it gets to the part about building your kernel it will fail because 
it'll be looking for a valid kernel config file.  Yes, the standard 
procedure here is to untar your kernel source beforehand, run menuconfig 
and generate a config file, then copy that file to the dir where you've 
got all your other packages and name it linux-config.
