If you have decided to re-compile your kernel it essentially means that either the current kernel configuration does not fulfill your needs or your are upgrading to the latest kernel.I needed to upgrade my 2.4 to 2.6 for working with my Bluetooth dongle.

Well even if you are completely satisfied with your kernel you can recompile it just for the sheer fun of it.    More detail...
