[techtalk] New Linux Kernel

I use Linux-Mandrake 7.0, which uses the 2.2.14-15
kernel.  I have downloaded the new 2.4.2 kernel and
decompressed it to my /usr/src/ directory, which made
it "/usr/src/linux".  I went into this directory and
typed in (as told in the readme file) "make config" or
"make xconfig" (I tried this first, since I use
xwindows).  The XConfig didn't work (putting it
bluntly with all kinds of errors), and "make config"
worked but when I did a "make dep" it came with all
kinds of errors.  I am wondering if I am doing this is
the right directory or something to that effect. 
Thank You for your time...
