Also, read the Changes file in the documentation folder. You will need to
update some other packages before using a 2.4 kernel.

hmmm, you also might want to make sure that your previous
kernel src wasn't already sitting in /usr/src/linux. i like
to just make /usr/src/linux a link to the current kernel in
/usr/src, so it looks like this:
[marisa at carcinogen marisa]$ ls -l /usr/src
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 12 Jan 29 21:55 linux ->
drwxr-xr-x 5 root root 4096 Jan 29 21:55 linux-2.2.12
drwxr-xr-x 18 root root 4096 Jan 29 21:54 linux-2.2.16
drwxr-xr-x 14 1046 xfs 4096 Mar 24 2000 v2.3.99-pre1
drwxr-xr-x 15 1046 xfs 4096 Mar 24 2000 v2.3.99-pre3
drwxr-xr-x 15 root root 4096 Apr 26 2000 v2.3.99-pre5
drwxr-xr-x 14 1046 xfs 4096 Nov 18 01:27 v2.4.0-t4
although, looking now, there's really no reason to have stuff
as old as some of this laying around. heh.
