kernel wooes


i've been trying to compile 3 three different versios of kernel but none went right.after i do make mrproper,make oldconfig,make dep,make bzImage,make modules,make modules_install then when i do make install it says

"All of your loopback device are in use"
mkinitrd failed
Make[1]:***[install]error1
...........
......."
what could be the reason and what's the solution for this?i have compiled multiple kernel's more than 5 times but i get the same error.i have even tried make menuconfig with my own modules.

note:i've been trying to compile kernel-2.4.* series.
