That's wrong. Either name the directory "linux" instead of "linux-2.4.14"
(if you prefer, just create a symlink) or you have to do:

cd /usr/src/linux-2.4.14
zcat ../patch-2.4.15-pre9.gz | patch -p1

I would advise you against patching the original files; instead do
something like this:

cd /usr/src
cp -al linux-2.4.14 linux-2.4.15-pre9
cd linux-2.4.15-pre9
zcat ../patch-2.4.15-pre9.gz | patch -p1
