Kernel Compile and DAC960

I'm trying to compile linux kernel 2.4.22 but I'm having some problems.
i get throught menuconfig, and then have to type "make dep" this starts to run, but then stops with the error

*** no rule to make target 'DAC960.c' , need by '/usr/src/linux-2.4.22/include/linux/modules/DAC960.ver' . Stop.

I tried going through the menuconfig stage again, and I KNOW that DAC960 is not selected in the block devices category, only floppy is selected in there. I had a quick look in the kernel sources directories too, and there are DAC960.c and DAC960.h files in the linux-2.4.22/drivers directory but as far as I can see there is no such file as /usr/src/linux-2.4.22/include/linux/modules/DAC960.ver .

Please help as I really want to get this working! Many thanks.

have you ever had a problem compiling your kernel before?

perhaps try compiling a 2.4.21 kernel and see if u get the same problem

other than that, try reinstalling or redownloading the source
