It never ran menuconfig for me, either. I just did a ctrl-c after it
finished unpacking, went to /Files/Compile/Source/Linux/2.6.xx and ran
make menuconfig myself, then reran Compile linux, telling it to use
the already existing source directory...
that did the trick for me..but I was curious why it didn't run
menuconfig when I seem to recall seeing in a couple of places that it
was supposed to do so.
