I don't think you'll be able to copy the kernel .config from 2.4 to 2.5, it's gonna crap out on you. I had this problem when going from 2.6.27 to 2.6.30. It just wouldn't work because of too many changes between releases.

I assumed OP refered to 2.4 and 2.5 versions of Crux rather than 2.4 kernel - I think based on release notes Crux has been using 2.6 kernel since about 2004 (release 2.0 of Crux) - but Dan can probably tell us that.
I also assume since file systems are ext3 or reiserfs rather than something like ext4 that older kernel (already compiled) will support this and boot the system anyway. I guess if uuid references have been used in /etc/fstab they may not be supported ...

CRUX has been using the 2.6 kernel for over five years now. "2.5" is just the latest version number of release. As Jonathan183 has pointed out, it can be a daunting task to get your .config set up where your hardware is supported correctly if you haven't done it before. With both Gentoo and CRUX, this process ultimately leads to a very svelte kernel.

OK Guys, thanks for all the help you provided me with!
I must confess that the problem was just silly me! I was just constantly overlooking submenu of IDE/ATA configuration! can you imagine?
We're all human, but we certainly have a different degrees of knowledge. I'm rather a *BSD user [especially OpenBSD], and I used to rather straightforward kernel config - I didn't even expect to use menuconfig
Now I just have to tinker with this config a little bit just to make sure everything is included.
Dan - you were right of course! It's nothing better than lean, small and fast kernel.
Anyway, Thank you very much. This thread is now solved!
