Thanks for that info, Carl. I had already read most of that, but
unfortunately it does not cover the mininum necessary options. An
'ubuntu-minimal' "package" for kernel options would be the kind of thing
I'm looking for.

I'm going to need to compile the whole kernel, so I'll figure it out
as best I can. If I can figure it out in a reasonably portable form
(ie. not too specific to my installation), I'll add it to the kernel
pages on the wiki.
