Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Try using a later version of kernel 2.4: current version is 2.4.29 (www.kernel.org). If that doesn't work, your gcc is quite old as well, so might be worth upgrading to latest version (3.4.3) (http://gcc.gnu.org)
actually the kernel developers insist that
GCC-2.95.3 is the proper compiler for compiling the 2.4.x series kernels
so upgrading your compiler will put you further away not closer to the solution i bet
is it possible to have multiple compilers on your system if you are carefull
"Beyond Linux From Scratch" book i think
i think book 5.1 or whatever tha oldest 5.x series is would be the right one for you
about building 2.95.3 if you want
i know gcc 3.3.1 will compile linux-2.4.22 i did that once
so if version isn't important try 2.4.22
also make sure in your kernel config you didn't choose
"prompt for experimental broken stuff that won't compile"
or whatever it says to that effect.
that's a showstopper every time
