Thanks to everyone who provided their inputs on this problem. It is not
solved yet but now I created another problem so I guess the
menuconfig will need a very detailed observation. Last time I had used
the make menuconfig, clean, modules as well as modules_install so that
was not a problem. The problem I feel is that by default the kernel
supports ext3 journaling through module '<M>' instead of '<*>' so it
gives an error of not recognising block (0,0) and cannot mount the fs on
root=/dev/hdax. However even after setting it embedded, the new kernel
now does not even go till the initial bootup messages. While repeating
the process of 'make' I have got a lot of errors during compilation so I
will do a clean retry and give feedback.
BG's suggestion of 'kernel-package' and the make-kpkg..... command was
very usefull and I use that now. More feedback after some more results.
