Hmm, could the problem be that you're updating a Mandrake kernel with a
generic one?  Could the Mandrake distro be putting something in a
different directory than where the generic kernel source expects?  It's
for that reason that I stick with Red Hat updates for my Red Hat
machines, never a generic.  I don't know if that matters or not, but
I've read that it can.
