Vanilla Kernel with SCISI harddisk

I have installed Suse 10.1 linux on my laptop(IBM) with 20GB partition. I was trying to install vanilla kernel (version- But it is not working properly. I followed following steps while installing -

1. tar -xvf linux-
2. cp /boot/config- ./.config
3. mrproper
4. makexconfig (here i enabled all SCISI options)
5. make
6. make modules
7. make modules_install
8. make install
9. yast

After this, i reboot my laptop and selected vanilla kernel. At this time, it went into shell and no command was working except few basic commands like ls,etc.
Can you suggest any solution for this problem?
