wow. 2.4 sure did start to grow, but I'd still like a copy of that .config

Ah, yes, the options. On the todo list: build a web page with all the 
options and what they mean. And fix all those option names that are config 
dependent with a CONFIG_ prefix so you can tell. Sorry.

Config files are in directories in the src tree and describe how to use
and build the .c files in that directory. Config files can pull in Config
files from other places.

The config.example etc. are top-level files which are handed to the 
NLBConfig tool (New Linux Bios Config) and which start the process of 
building a build directory.
