Ok, first of all make sure you have an official kernel tarball.

Remove the current /usr/src/linux directory.

rm -rf /usr/src/linux

Untar the new official tarball.

cd /usr/src
tar zxvf linux-2.0.35.tar.gz

cd linux

Now you should be ready to roll. The only catch is that you
ABSOLUTELY MUST have gcc-2.7.2 installed, and it must exist as
/usr/bin/gcc.

If you have egcs installed, and it gets invoked, you most likely
will not get a kernel.
