Tarball sounds bad in your case, mate.
Another thought ...
if kernel compilations fail, try symlinking
/usr/src/linux to the directory your actual
kernel lives in
if it still fails, run a make clean.
if it still fails, run a make mrproper
Mandy, RH, SuSE, they all use custom kernels,
and the problem your encounter might very well
be rooted there ...
Try to get a newer Kernel Source RPM from
P.S.: I had quite some problems with 2.4.19 on 2
machines at work, you might want to grab a 2.4.20
which I found to be quite robust :)
