I am trying to follow these instructions

and it is telling me to edit my kernel config. I don't know where it is.

In order to modify your kernel configuration, you will need to rebuild the kernel entirely. It is a great learning experience, but note that a broken kernel can result in an unbootable system. Here is how you go about configuring and compiling your own kernel

You may want to just check that the kernel options you need are not already available:

zgrep CONFIG_ATH_COMMON /proc/config.gz
zgrep ATH9K /proc/config.gz

If these are set as required, then no need to build a kernel.
