Kernel Compilation Problems in Fedora 7

I am facing problems when i try to compile the kernel. I am using fedora7 which has gcc 4.1.2 in it. The procedure that i followed was :

1. Got the kernel source(2.6.10)
2. make menuconfig. As soon as i gave this command there were lots of warnings after which i was guided to a window with many options.
3. after configuring the options and saving the config file , i faced the following errors :

{standard input}: Assembler messages:
{standard input}:1382: Error: suffix or operands invalid for `mov'
{standard input}:1384: Error: suffix or operands invalid for `mov'
{standard input}:1715: Error: suffix or operands invalid for `mov'
{standard input}:1717: Error: suffix or operands invalid for `mov'
{standard input}:1821: Error: suffix or operands invalid for `mov'

{standard input}:2006: Error: suffix or operands invalid for `mov'
{standard input}:2134: Error: suffix or operands invalid for `mov'
{standard input}:2147: Error: suffix or operands invalid for `mov'
make[1]: *** [arch/i386/kernel/process.o] Error 1
make: *** [arch/i386/kernel] Error 2

The real question is why would anyone "1. Got the kernel source(2.6.10)" when Fedora 7 was released with a far newer 2.6.21 kernel??? Or attempt to use a kernel that is over three years old??
