    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

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