butteff,

You can bypass this step for now and use Genkernel.
Genkernel on its own, will make you a kernel that boots but it will be missing support for your WiFi and hardware accelerated video.
You can add that later and learn to build your own kernel as you go.

If you want to build your own kernel from the outset, kernel-seeds.org mirror tells how to go about it.
There have been no new seed .config files for a few years now but the method is still correct.

As you won't have a current seed to start from, you will need to look at all the config options.
