    SubjectThe kernel won't compile NO MATTER WHAT I do!!!!!

    Feel free to read that error message and think about it a little. "No
    space left", when you're using a compiler to *write* large numbers of
    object and executable files to your hard disk (which is a "device", by
    the way). "make zlilo" causes the kernel image to be *written* out to your
    root filesystem (which is also stored on a disk "device"). *Writing*
    output to a block device (your hard disk) which has a finite amount of
    free space left continues to deplete the free space until ...

    Give up?

    You're out of disk space. Go delete something.

    Or maybe you've got your /etc/lilo.conf pointing at a floppy drive,
    and you forgot to put your lilo boot disk in the floppy drive. I think
    you'd get a different message, though.
