Error while "make modules" while recompiling the kernel on linux 2.4.21-40ELsmp

Im getting this error while running "make modules" on RH linux 2.4.21-40 (essentially, Im trying to recompile the kernel.) I was able to get # make bzImage working before this command...

$ make modules
attribute directive ignored
In file included from qla2100.c:43:
qla2x00.c:18368: duplicate initializer
qla2x00.c:18368: (near initialization for `driver_template.use_clustering')
make[3]: *** [qla2100.o] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.4.21-40.EL/drivers/addon/qla2200'
make[2]: *** [_modsubdir_qla2200] Error 2
make[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.4.21-40.EL/drivers/addon'
make[1]: *** [_modsubdir_addon] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.4.21-40.EL/drivers'
make: *** [_mod_drivers] Error 2

Any ideas are appreciated.. Please respond back if you can...

-- thanks

make menuconfig
make dep
make clean
