The easiest thing to do here is running:

# make menuconfig

Which is an ncurses-based text user interface to configure the kernel, 
from there you usually mark only the features that apply to your 
hardware, and the filesystems you want to use; if you don't want to do 
that, just get a probed generic configuration from another distribution 
and replace .config in the same directory of the linux sources. After 
you are done, run:

# make install

In some cases building an initrd or initramfs might be needed, for that 
you can use whatever is available on your system by default.
