kernel compile errors

A previous thread on compiling kernels got me back to something I had set aside while I played with networking.

I am using slack-9.0 on a box with an AMD 500something Mhz cpu and 256 Mb RAM. Using bare.i stocjk kernel from install

Nothing fancy required but I thought I'd see if I do up a kernel (my next learnibg experience).

I downloaded linux-2.4.20.tgz and started with the bare.i config file off the ISO. I have followed the compiling guide from the previous thread although I have also checked th how to and a few other docs off the net.

I have been unsuccesful so far in compiling. I get error messages during make bzImage although once I finshed that and got the message during make. I start from a new source tree each time

I'm not looking for someone to debug for me, but I"m wondering why should I have this problem with the slack kernel source and the slack kernel config. I would have figured that these would be safe and simple for a first time out. and would certainly work in a fairly recent/unmodofied slack-9.0 install.
