kernel compile?


this below is out of the README in both 2.4 and 2.6 in the kernel source
Quote:
Do NOT use the /usr/src/linux area! This area has a (usually
incomplete) set of kernel headers that are used by the library header
files. They should match the library, and not get messed up by
whatever the kernel-du-jour happens to be.
Could you help me understand it

I think what they mean is don't place your kernel in an existing /usr/src/linux directory. Download and install to the /usr/src but after unpacking the download, symlink the new directory like /linux-2.6.0 to /usr/src/linux and you will be ok.
