yes, indeed, this was the problem!!! (by the way: HURRAY, IT BOOTS!)

It seems that loading an "old" config file from the 2.4.*-series
of linux kernels will WIPE OUT that config items since they are not
written back to disk anymore when saving kernel configuartions....

Another thing is that make menuconfig fails to write back
configurations as alternate files into directories owned by root
and set drwxr-xr-x....but it is able to write into the . directory,
even if it is set with drwxr-xr-x also...

But this is only a sideeffect.

Keep Hacking!
