From the above:
"The adjustkernel Perl script, which can be found at
http://www.feyrer.de/Misc/adjustkernel, analizes the output of dmesg(8)
and automatically generates a minimal configuration file. To run it you
need to have Perl installed on your system. "
That script has been around a few years nov - I dont use it myself, but
its worth a go.
