Is there a reason you need the 2.6 kernel? If I wanted to make a newbie give up on Linux before they gave it a chance, I would tell them to compile the kernel.

I agree rolled oat, this makes no sense to me why somebody wants to do that as a newbie. But being a newbie they probably don't know that...
But regarding the problem, it looks like it is missing some header files.
How did you get the source you are compiliing from?
try to reinstall the source (from, copy the .config into the base of the new sourcetree, and issue ' make oldconfig modules bzImage install Modules_install '
if the same problem reoccurs with a clean source, I doubt you can do anything about it.
