You know that you can enter '?' at the prompt and get help for each one,

I'd recommend starting from something like, say, zx1_defconfig (if you
have an HP) or sn2_defconfig (if you have an SGI), and tweak it from
there as you need.  Just run 'make zx1_defconfig' and you'll have many
fewer questions to answer.

You can also run 'make help' and it'll tell you a lot of other things
you can do.
