Minimizing the Kernel size for beagle board

Does anyone have a idea on how to minimize the size of the beagleboard xM kernel? Currently, I have a kernel 3.2.8 which on compilation, gives a uImage size of 8.2 MB. As I have noticed that the size of kernel 2.6.32 which comes with beagle board SD card is only 3.1 MB. So, can anyone point me to bare minimal options needed in the kernel configuration to boot up the beagleboard with network support? Also, I tried searching the .config file for 2.6.32 kernel which comes with beagleboard, but was unable to locate the same.

Hello

I have been trying already long time to boot Linux v 3.x on beagleboard, but never worked.
can i have the uImage that you are booting on the beagleboard, together with the .config file, u-boot and rootfs.
