Question FC1 Error installing a program... Help!

I was trying to install kzephyr and I got this message:
make: *** No rule to make target `config'. Stop.

I untarred and un gz ed it, then I cd into it's directory, hit ./configure, let it finish, then hit "make config" and it didn't work! I get this error a lot and it'd be a great help if someone told me what I'm doing wrong. Thanks.

Usually you just type 'make' after ./configure and then 'make install'. Unless the documentation for the software you're trying to install says differently, you do all the configuration with the configure script.

Oh, thanks. Someone told me differently for one program and I wrote it down. Thanks.
