I think that you will not find this one. The best explanation of most of
these submenus (that I know of) is the help text that accompanies them.
Other than the kernel source of course!

That said, there are quite a few options that are well documented
elsewhere... just google for them if they seem interesting enough.

I would start by setting in-kernel all the modules your kernel loads at
start up. The objective would be that in a fully booted system, the command
"lsmod" returns nothing. That will keep you busy for quite some time ;-P
After that you can start removing all the modules for weird hardware you
don't have or will foreseeable have, in order to reduce the compilation

And then... without even noticing, you will have learned a lot about even
the most arcane kernel options...
