Well this is a bit late, about 3 in the morning, sorry I work 11pm to 7am and have been working the last 8 days, so my clock is a bit off. I am very glad it is friday to, although I have to go back to work sunday! Oh well.
Good luck on the kernel. I haven't used Drake to configure it, I probably wouldn't recommend it, I think the good ole menuconfig or xconfig will be more reliable. I could be wrong though. I think at this time you probably have already done one thing or another! ;D
So let us know how it goes!
