Does GENERIC build OK? I always build and boot GENERIC before trying a 
custom kernel anyway as you should be sure that it works properly.

Then when you come to configure a custom kernel, you should use the new 
GENERIC as a base to start from as new default options may have been 
added or options that where in your existing KERNCONF may have been removed.
