Well, here are some steps:
1. boot an Ubuntu livecd
2. lspci && lsmod and see what it has detected/loaded
3. cd /usr/src/linux && make menuconfig
4. read the help for each "set" option and see what it does (like many
people did in the early days). If you don't find it useful, press N.

One more detail: Is better put this modules listed in lsmod as "built-in"?

One doubt, in my lsmod I see sd_mod, cdrom, intel_agp, sg, pcmci_core, agppart, snd_page_alloc, and some others, but they didn't listed in .config file

#cat config_2.6.21.1.txt | grep -i sd_mod
Result is empty!
