Ok, I'm still confused. This is the Chapter 5 build, and I see
nothing in there about kernel-config. If the commands are simply
extracted from the book, then I don't see where the book describes
how to construct that file. I also read the Chapter 6 build
instructions for the Linux API, and see nothing about how to create
that file.

So, I still don't know what to do about this. The book does not
describe building that file in either Chapter 5 or Chapter 6.

Oppose globalization and One World Governments like the UN.
