Re-compiling kernel

I seem to remember to have read in some place, but
I don't remember where, that there's a way for avoiding
to reply to all the questions made when re-compiling a kernel, and leave the old ones as a default, thus changing
only some of them.

Perhaps this is a trivial question, but I've compiled three
slightly different versions of the kernel (1.2.13) and each
time I had to reply to all the questions made by the system
before the compilation process. I would have preferred to
leave as a default the answers I gave the first time, and
change only the parts that were different in the different
kernel versions I created.

How can I obtain this?

Thank you,

You can use

make menuconfig

or

make xconfig

depending wether you want to set up your kernel in a normal shell or in Xwindows. For latter you need tcl/tk installed.
