I finally have been able to compile my updated kernel 2.4. However, the next step is 'make dep', which presents me with a whole bunch of unintellible verbiage and nothing else. The dashes in front of each "from" comment are added to place the wording same as on my screen-if I use spaces, they will be stripped from this post.
gcc -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -02 -fomit-frame-pointer -o scripts/mkidep scripts/mkdep.c-
in file included from /usr/include/bits/posix1-lim.h:126,
-----------------from /usr/include/limits.h:30,
-----------------from /usr/lib/gcc-lib/i386-redhat-linux/2.96/include/limits.:h:130,
-----------------from /usr/lib/gcc/-lib-i386-redhat-linux/2.96/include/syslimits.h:7,
-----------------from /usr/lib/gcc/-lib-i386-redhat-linux/2.96/include/limits.h:11,
-----------------from scripts/mkdep.c:35:
/usr/include/bits/lodal_lim.h:36:26: linux/limits.h: No such file or directory
make: *** [scripts/mk/dep] Error 1
Also, when 'make bzlilo', I am taken right back to where I was when I did 'make config', namely the configure script.
Can someone help me with this?

i have only rebuilt my kernel a half dozen times so i am no expert... but i have never had any problems (*KNOCK_ON_WOOD*)... but i always do it like this...

first i make a symlink to the kernel source dir named linux(just for quickness).. cd to linux and...

$ make mrproper
$ make xconfig
$ make dep && make bzImage && make modules && make modules_install

the last line will save you time and will stop if anyone fails... but if there is a problem with a file not being there, this wont help...
