Patching 2.6.4 with mm2

Hey there!

I've been away from my Linux for some time. Forgive O Great Pinguin.

Anyway, I just installed CollegeLinux 2.5 which is based of Slack 9.1 As it seems, it comes with the 2.4.23 Kernel. I downloaded and recompiled the 2.6.4 kernel. Now, as I am having some troubles with the video, it is recomended that I install the -mm patches to my kernel. So I downloaded the 2.6.4-mm2 patch and installed it. It seems to patch everything okay, only problem is that after I do so, I can't configure the kernel! When I run

'make menuconfig'

Or the such, it tells me that there is a folder or file that is not existant. It is looking for something within /usr/src/linux/scripts/basic, a folder which doesn't exist under de vanilla 2.6.4 Kernel.

I'm wondering if, like vanilla Kernel patches, do I need to install the mm1 patch before I do this one? Or is some other evil at work here?

Thanks in advance people!
