Error "No rule to make target" while installing Linux Kernel 2.6.25.10


Hello!
I'm new at linux.When i was trying to compile kernel , an error occured.

Code:
make[1]: *** No rule to make target 'arch/x86/kernel/entry-32.o',needed by 'arch/x86/kernel/built-in.o'. Stop.
make: ***[arch/x86/kernel] Error 2
what can i do to fix this problem?

Thank you in advance.

Did you accidently leave something out that you needed during the xconfig portion?
