make config

I recently added a cdrom to my PC and my Linux does not recognise it. I
was told that one has to reconfigure the kernel to include the proper driver
etc. Also it is said that all you have to do is to go to the directory and
use the comand 'make config'. When I do that I get the following response:
rm -f include/asm
rm: include/asm: is a directory
make: *** [symlinks] Error 1
That stopped me cold. Since I did not install Linux myself, I find myself
in the dark. I am thinking of reinstalling a higher version myself so
that I might know the process in more detail. Any advice?
