Error running 'make bzImage'

I was trying to recompile my kernel and I had succesfully completed 'make clean', 'make menuconfig' and, 'make dep' and I get an error when I try to run 'make bzImage'. (I have also tried running bzlilo but also recieve errors.)

the last 6 lines of text are(I'm reading this off my writing so some things may not be exactly right):

gcc -D KERNEL __ -I /usr/src/kernel/linux/autoconf.h include/config

trigraphs -02 -fomit-frame-pointer -fno-strict-aliasing -fno-common -pipe -mpref

erred-stack-boundary=2 -march=i686 -c -o init/main/o init/main.c

gcc: Internal compiler error : program cc1 got fatal signal 9

cpp0 : output pipe has closed

make : *** [init/main.o] error 1

Could someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong.

Disclaimer: I apologize in advance if this is a stupid question or if the answer is in an easily located place.

Well, according to the error message your compiler's bailing. Where did you get the kernel source? If you're sure your kernel source tree is OK, then it's probably your compiler (reinstall it).

Error running 'make bzImage'

I have reinstalled a couple of times off of the same cd, perhaps theres an error on the original cd. I'll try getting a new version of the source and the compiler install and I'll try again.
