SubjectCannot compile my kernel due to unpredictible situations:
I have downloaded linux kernel 2.4.
In /usr/src, I did untar the file:
gzip -cd linux-2.4.0.tar.gz | tar xvf -
I see several files being copied to several locations (/linux/Documentation,
/linux/arch/..etc..). The problem is that there's no linux 2.4 directory created
under /usr/src or anywhere else on my system! Anyway, there's nothing new
under /usr/src!!!
Linux is not new to me, so I know that this is weird ( I even tried it with "tar -zxvf linux-2.4.0.tar.gz", "gzcat linux-2.4.0.tar.gz | tar xvf - " ..etc). Same result.
Anyway, let's say that it doesn't matter whether there's a new kernel 2.4 directory or not..
how can I make sure that I am re-compiling my kernel (currently kernel 2.2.5) with
the right 2.4 kernel?? (Kernel howto talks about going to /usr/src/linux and start compiling..but current /usr/src/linux is a link to my current 2.2.5 kernel !!!)

Current OS: Red Hat Linux 6.0 Kernel 2.2.5
