Compilation problems

Hi, I've encountered a problem compiling the 2.4.2 kernel.

I downloaded the source, did a make menuconfig, make dep, make bzImage;
everything went ok, but I didn't have the NIC working correctly. I
recompiled, it seemed to go ok but still the NIC didn't work. Then I
tried make clean, make mrproper, make menuconfig, make dep, make bzImage,
and now I keep getting an error at the very end of the compile process...

init/main.o(.text.init+0x53): undefined reference to
make: ***[vmlinux] Error 1

I've even tried removing the source tree and re extracting from the tar
ball again but it always stops at the same place now. If you have any
ideas, please let me know. I'm not a member of the list so a cc would
really be great.

Good judgement comes from experience, and experience - well, that comes from poor judgement.
