Did you do all these things in the right directory?
Sometimes distributions habe a (linked) directory (called /usr/src/linux or
so), which points to the directory with the sources to compile (maybe
If you copy the sources of 2.4.0 in a extra directory (/usr/src/2.4.0)and
compile in the symbolic directory, you compile the old (linked) sources.

You can correct the link or compile in /usr/src/2.4.0.
