errors while compiling linux 2.4.21 kernel!!

i tried to compile 2.4.21 kernel ...but while making the bzImage the foll. errors occurred:

in usr/src/linux2.4.21/include/linux/smp.h ; error: conflivt type for 'smp_send_reschedule' (line 29)

and in the same file another error: previous declaration 'smp_send_reschedule' was here (line 42)

can you tell me how can i compile my kernel successfully?

P.S--i faced similar problems in 2.4.6 kernel.
i work on Fedora core 4 linux.

It seems the problem is with SMP options under Processor type and Features. Could you provide the exact options that you choosed under that head? I don't know if it can help, but it can surely point somewhere.

And what is the exact hardware config of your system?
