As for question 1, there is no kernel configuration menu in the installation
As for the second question I can only make a suggestion. Disable "plug and
play support" (set it to "no") in the BIOS, before you attempt to do
anything. UNIX systems simply do not detect things OK when that option is
enabled. Good luck.
