Are you configuring the kernel first? Before you can make the kernel, you have to execute one of the following configuration commands (depending on what you want/prefer or what your system is capable of doing at the time):

make config //basic, difficult to navigate
make menuconfig //easier to navigate
make xconfig //requires a running X session, easiest to work with.

Hope this helps you.
