You need gcc version 2.7.2. Take a look in the 2.0 kernel source under
./Documentation/Changes. It lists all the things that need to be upgraded
to use 2.0. There's quite a few things that need to be done. There are
also several "kernel victim" pages out there that help with upgrading to
2.0. I'm afraid I don't know any of the URL's though.

Good luck! oh.. it's worth it, it's a nice kernel :)
