Error Compiling Kernel


When i was compiling the kernel, after ive made the .config file(with menuconfig) and type the command "make" i get the following:

sarge:/usr/src/kernel-source-2.6.9# make
  CHK     include/linux/version.h
make[1]: *** No rule to make target `init/main.o', needed by `init/built-in.o'.  Stop.
make: *** [init] Error 2
Even if i do bzimage or zimage it gives the same error. Anyone know why?
