Leave the GENERIC file as-is, and only remove devices you do not  
have, such as all those bazillion ethernet devices and such, and  
remove options you do not need such as NFS_ROOT

I also remove tape changers and the like, and usually disable USB  
unless the machine only has a USB keyboard.

It looks pretty much like what you've done :-)

I've never tried linux compat in a 64 bit box, so I can't comment on
