No networking options in kernel configuration

i want to compile a new kernel on my fedora core 3 and change some configuration setting in NETWORKING OPTIONS.i download kernel-source (kernel-2.6.11-1.14) from and extract it to /usr/src/ . i create a directory named "linux" in /usr/src/ (that is a soft link to my unziped kernel source).i run "make mrproper , make clean and then make menuconfig.but when the LINUX KERNEL CONFIGURATION appear , "Networking Options" not listed.i try other kernel source like 2.6.10 and 2.6.11.X but the result was current kernel ver is and running FC3.i also view my .config file in /usr/src/linux and open it with vi editor and i find "Networking options" on that .config file.
can u help me .

You are going about this a little wrong.The kernel source should be unziped and a new file will be created like kernel-2.6.10 then you remove the simlink;
cd /usr/src
rm linux(if there is one there)
ln -s kernel-2.6.10 linux
cd linux
make menuconfig
I never run make mrproper or make clean but then again I don't do fedora
after menuconfig when you are happy save then
make && make modules_install
make install
or you can copy it manually.
