Hi Jue,
This has me puzzled. I am installing the trial version of 2.3.
To make my life easier I always copy the kernel from the CD into
/boot and copy the modules from the CD also. That way I have no need
to compile a kernel the first time, just get grub in and try it out.
After setting that really useful variable
LESSOPEN='|/usr/lib/less/filter %s'
I was able to get the config used in the running CD kernel with
less /proc/config.gz > gzconfig
and then diff .config gzconfig showed it to be  the same
as the initial .config  in the kernel source
(except small difference in version and date).

wishing you a happy New Year
