136 minutes seems like you're building a ton of stuff you don't need.
I just recompiled on my k6200 and it took 34 minutes.
I'd recommend starting with the base and removing options as you see.
Many are blatantly not for your hardware, others are borderline. Err on
the side of caution. lspci is definitely your friend trying to glean
all hardware info.
Taking the default kernel works, but you have a bunch of stuff in there
that you don't need. (probably not because they're all modules)
Getting a lean mean kernel will definitely cut down on your compile
So lilo doesn't show a Linux-Old?
for chroot he means run the chroot command, it changes / to whatever you
tell it to. So instead of / being on the cd, you can point it to the
first mount your hard disk (/dev/hda? I think you said) to some place say
mount /dev/hda? /mnt
If you have more than one partition I'd mount those as well
mount /dev/hda? /mnt/boot
I'm not 100% sure on that last one as I haven't run the command before.
but that's a good place to start
