There's no hassle if you know which options are needed. If not you can as well enable everything that might be needed just like your default kernel does.
Just make sure you compile it to a different name so you don't overwrite your current 2.4 kernel and that you have an entry for it in your favourite boot loader. I'm not using Suse, but I believe it ships with tools to make kernel compiling easier.
Also, don't forget that 2.6 needs new module utilities.
Oh and yeah, it's worth it - in any case you'll lern how to compile a kernel
