problems compiling kernel


I'm very new to linux and i'm trying to compile the kernel on a debian system.
I'm always getting the following error, what do I have to do to solve this problem

CC init/version.o
LD init/built-in.o
LD .tmp_vmlinux1
net/built-in.o(.init.text+0x2ee0)ld: Unsupported .stab relocation
: multiple definition of `init_module'
kernel/built-in.o(.text+0x17480):/usr/local/src/kernel-source- first defined here
ld: Warning: size of symbol `init_module' changed from 3 in kernel/built-in.o to 11 in net/built-in.o

Use this guide to check,looks like something is not installed,I have used this guide and it works good.You may need to update fstab and make sure you compile support Y in to the kernel and not as modules for both your filesystems and your drives as they are compiled as modules by default and it will not boot.
