Default Compile Kernel Interface for Debian (Kernel 2.6.8-1-k7)

I tried to compile the kernel interface for Debian.

I use the kernel 2.6.8-1-k7. I have installed:
- kernel-headers-2.6.8-1,
- kernel-headers-2.6.8-1-k7
- kernel-image-2.6.8-1-k7
- kernel-source-2.6.8

I have also copied the config file form /boot/config-2.6.8-1-k7 to .config in /usr/src/kernel-source-2.6.8.

But, I always get en error! Does someone know this problem? (See Log-file)

If you are using a Linux 2.4 kernel, please make sure
you either have configured kernel sources matching your
kernel or the correct set of kernel headers installed
on your system.

If you are using a Linux 2.6 kernel, please make sure
you have configured kernel sources matching your kernel
installed on your system.
