Some of you might have read my earlier plea for help with the same problem
;well I've cleared up some disk space and I don't get the SAME error
message;I now get two different errors.Now I'm really desperate.Please
I've been trying to compile the latest kernel(2.0.7);it's not the kernel
version that's causing the problem.Whenever I try to compile a new kernel,
no matter what version it is,it just won't compile(yes,I've read all the
FAQ's and how-to's).I'll go to /usr/src and rename linux to linux-old and
then untar the new kernel by typing "tar -xvzf linux-x.x.x.tar.gz" and it'll
do that just fine.Then I'll go to the new linux directory(/usr/src/linux) and
type "make mrproper",which cleans out the old kernel's files(I think,I saw
it on some kernel-howto),then I'll type "make config" and then answer all
the questions and then type "make dep ; make clean ; make zlilo"and it'll
compile for about twenty minutes or so(I've got a Gateway2000 Pentium-100
with 8 megs of ram and a PCI Bus) and then it'll say

"Root device is (3,2)"
"Boot sector 512 bytes"
"Setup is 4416 bytes"
"System is 549 kB"
"System is too big"
"make[1] :*** [zImage] Error 1"
"make[1] :Leaving directory '/usr/src/linux-1.2.13/arch/i386/boot'"
"make :*** [zlilo] Error 2"

what is going on here?I would be very,very thankful if someone could please
help me.I'm sort of a newbie to linux even though I've had Slackware 3.0
since about Feb. 96'.Please E-mail me at
