Angry Errors Compiling the kernel

I just spent some time downloading and attempting to install the new kernel. Currently, the problem I'm having regards compiling the actual image: when I run 'make bzImage', somewhere during the compile I get a message about Make error code 2: no rule specified for ipt_TOS.o ... (this is not a direct quote, but generally what i can remember of the err msg)

It seems to me the makefile has a typo somewhere (haven't found it yet); instead of looking for ipt_TOS.o, make should be looking for ipt_tos.o?
Has anyone else had this problem??

I even tried to exclude the specific netfilter modules that (i imagine) would reference ipt_tos.o, but no luck.

btw, I'm runnning slack 10.1 on AMD64 Athlon 3000+ 1.8Ghz 512Mb.
and I'll try and give more detailed debug output in my next post => i booted into windows since i decided to stop faffing about with trying to compile the kernel...

I think an equally important question is whether anyone has successfully compiled this kernel on slack 10.1? if so, please give details.

I compiled this kernel on Slack 10.1, following this guide and without problems. Dunno about the error message though .
