Default Compile kernel for MSI Wind/Advent 4211 (ubuntu 8.10)

Hey,

Can anyone tell me how to compile a custom kernel for the Advent 4211C (a MSI Wind OEM clone). The only change from the default specs was swapping the wifi card for a Dell 1490 card, and replacing the stock 120GB HDD with a 320GB HDD.

I've never compiled a kernel before, but I'm pretty knowledgable with linux, and not afriad to cripple my system to try make a custom kernel to speed up boot, etc

Any help greatly appreciated

Take a look here: http://www.howtoforge.com/kernel_compilation_ubuntu
But I don't know what options you need to enable so that the kernel supports your hardware. Maybe oyu even need to patch the kernel, but to be honest I don't know.
