make bzImage on 2.4.17 segmentation faults

Every time I try to compile kernel 2.4.17 on my redhat 7.2 box I get a segmentation fault. Anyone who has successfully compiled it let me know. I've loaded the kernel-2.4.9-i686.config from my current kernel into the "make xconfig" interface and customized it from there.

Here's what I've shut off in vain attempts to get it working:

- Removed all sound support
- Removed bluetooth support
- Removed USB support
+ Added ext3 support.
- Removed Video For Linux support
- Removed old cd-rom driver support.
- Removed ISDN support.
- Removed ISDN; IrDA support.
- Removed network device support.
- Removed i20 support.
- Removed firewire support.
- Removed fusion mpt support.
- Removed SCSI support.

And here's the result from the "make bzImage" just before the segmentation fault. It's at the same place every time.

make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/pmunn/temp/Kernel/linux/arch/i386/lib'

-o vmlinux
make: *** [vmlinux] Segmentation fault
make: *** Deleting file `vmlinux'

Can anyone help?
