Question Kernel 2.6.4 compile error


I am trying to update my 2.4 kernel that came with slack 9.1 to the 2.6.4 kernel
here are my steps
make mrproper
make menuconfig
[select options I want]
make

this runs for a bit and errors out with

kernel make error no rule to make target 'net/ipv4/netfilter/ipt_ecn.o' , needed by 'net/ipv4/netfilter/built-in.o".
[net/ipv4/netfilter] Error 2
[net/ipv4] Error 2
[net] Error 2


Is there something I am not selecting that I should? Am selecting somethign that I shoudl not be?
Any help would be appreciated.

You can't use just plain "make" for a kernel. Search around on this site, and you will find all the information you need for compiling your kernel.

After you are finished with "make menuconfig" you run:

make bzImage
make modules
make modules_install

The last 2 are only needed if you included loadable module support, by the way.
