Sure.  I can go into more detail about the problems I am having with the mini 
kernel example provided on the backup-basics page.  But, you might have 
missed the point of my question.  I was not trying to get help on fixing that 
problem.  I was simply looking for an example config that I could copy.  I 
was only mentioning the source of the problem because I thought it might be 
helpful to know why I was looking for a mini kernel.  

Here's the problems with the mini config I found online at:

I tried running /usr/sbin/config on it.  And, config complained about 3 or 4 
lines.  Each time I that encountered that problem, I copied the corresponding 
line from my GENERIC kernel.  Eventually, it configured.  So, I changed 
directories to the /usr/src/sys/compile/MINI directory and ran "make depend".  
This craps out with the following error (hand typing this because I'm on 
another box):

==> accf_data
"/usr/share/mk/", line 53: cannot be included directly.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/src/sys/modules.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/src/sys/compile/MINI

Does this help?
