    make dep is obsolete in 2.6

    When reconfiguring a 2.4 kernel it is adviced to do a:
    cp .config ..
    make mrproper
    cp ../.config .
    make oldconfig
    make dep

    For 2.6 you can just run make, without cleaning up before.
    To get a resonable small configuration you can start out with
    "make allnoconfig", which compiles ok in 2.6 for now.

    This is a good place - you can also try kernelnewbies.
