How Do I "Enable Kernel Options"?

While attempting to install my Wacom tablet, I cam across this web page
which seems to indicate that the 2.6.12 kernel will be able to support
my table "out of the box", without having to do lengthy configuration
The web page is here;
And the quote in question is this:
"Well, with kernel 18.104.22.168 I haven't got any headache Just enable 2
options in kernel config and my tablet worked out of the box with the
open source driver, try it the next time"
Of course I searched the Internet for clues about what this meant, but
I have no been able to determine what exactly it means to "enable kernel
options", except that it seems to involve rebuilding the kernel.
I've downloaded the kernel source, but I don't know what I should do
I think what I'm looking for is this:
"Features to enable in kernel 22.214.171.124 :
Device Drivers/USB support/Wacom Intuos/Graphire tablet support
Device Drivers/Input device support/Event interface"
How do I enable these features?
Does this involve rebuilding the kernel? If so, is that a task that
comes with any dangers?
Thank you in advance for any advice.
