problem compiling kernel 2.6.6

I upgrade redhat 9 to fedora.
compiling kernel 2.6.6 i got the problem

[root@myServer linux]# make install
make[1]: `arch/i386/kernel/asm-offsets.s' is up to date.
CHK include/linux/compile.h
Kernel: arch/i386/boot/bzImage is ready
sh /usr/src/linux-2.6.6/arch/i386/boot/ 2.6.6 arch/i386/boot/bzImage ""
/sbin/new-kernel-pkg: line 328: 2359 Terminated depmod -ae -F /boot/$version $version
No dep file found for kernel 2.6.6
mkinitrd failed
make[1]: *** [install] Error 1
make: *** [install] Error 2

[root@myServer linux]#

make dep provided the following results:
[root@montServ linux]# make dep
*** Warning: make dep is unnecessary now.
