I dunno what's causing your problems, but I have recompiled about 10 different kernels over the last week, and you are having too much trouble.

I always unpack the kernel bz2 file in /usr/src from there you just do:

tar xjfv [location]/linux-2.4.23.tar.bz2

and then

cd linux-2.4.23

and you're in. I didn't have to change gcc versions or anything. I'm using gcc 3.2.3-25 I believe. Just did:

cp ../linux-2.4.21-144/.config .
make menuconfig dep

and made sure everything was installed that I need

make clean bzImage modules
make modules_install install

Where you are using lilo there is more work to do. I am using GRUB (EASY!!) which installs the kernel image to the bootloader itself. But you are having far too much trouble...I didn't even know how to compile the kernel a week ago, and now here I am

AMD Athlon XP 1700+ @ 2336mhz (JIUHB)
EPoX 8RDA+ nForce2
1gb PC2700 DDR
Visiontek GF4ti4600
SB Audigy 1 (w/ 1394)
