Kitchensink, Custom Kernel, Kernel and so on who c an light me up?
iam actually try to inform my self about the kernel, making them selfs and so on.
First of all i dont realize what kitchensink is?
Is it a own kernel?
or is it a tool to create an own kernel?
Has someone some light information about that? any useful links or something?

read the wiki guide on compiling a custom kernel. Then do it yourself on a virtual machine just so you can say you’ve done it. You don’t have to make a good working kernel first try, just getting familiar with the process goes a long way to understanding.
Do this and your questions should answer themselves.
very nice answer thank you @maltibelli :)
Some additional questions:
[INDENT=1]1.) This Kitchensink thing is it similar like a busybox enabling this that and those option?[/INDENT]
[INDENT=1]2.) How should i know which drivers are in which KS Kernel enabled or not?[/INDENT]
[INDENT=1]3.) Lets say i have problems with the latest kernel 3.8.8 on some machines how to find[/INDENT]
[INDENT=1]out which kernel is good by trying or is there something more cogently?[/INDENT]

Kitchensink is the configuration used to create the kernel.
The kitchensink config has more options included (such as drivers) which will support more devices than the core kernel. (I use a kitchensink based kernel it to get Dell Optiplex 755’s working with FOG)
Downside is the kernel is larger and may be slower.
FOG has an option to download a Kitchensink kernel in it’s UI. Or you could use the kitchensink.config to compile a new kernel.
