Error compiling the kernel


Hi all, I'm a kernel newbie and I'm trying to compile the kernel. I downloaded and installed the latest FC3 kernel with yumex. I cd'ed to /lib/modules/2.6.11-1.14_FC3/build and ran make xconfig. I did all the changes and saved them but when I run "make", I get this error:

[root@localhost build]# make
CHK include/linux/version.h
CHK include/asm-i386/asm_offsets.h
/bin/sh: arch/i386/kernel/asm-offsets.s: No existe el fichero o el directorio
UPD include/asm-i386/asm_offsets.h
mv: no se puede efectuar `stat' sobre «include/asm-i386/asm_offsets.h.tmp»: No existe el fichero o el directorio
make: *** [include/asm-i386/asm_offsets.h] Error 1
[root@localhost build]#

When running make mrproper I get this error:

[root@localhost build]# make mrproper
scripts/Makefile.clean:10: Documentation/DocBook/Makefile: No existe el ficheroo el directorio
make[1]: *** No hay ninguna regla para construir el objetivo `Documentation/DocBook/Makefile'. Alto.
make: *** [_mrproper_Documentation/DocBook] Error 2
[root@localhost build]#

Does anyone know what might be the problem and the solution?? (I'm a kernel newbie, so I need some detailed information on this)
Thanks in advance.

I thought it was necessary to apply the changes made to the kernel with xconfig. So isn't it necessary??
