While I think this is a good idea in general:
make bzImage gives this:
make[4]: Leaving directory `/exp/src1/kernels/2.4.23/Desktop/linux-2.4.23/fs/vfat'
make -C xfs fastdep
make: *** xfs: No such file or directory.  Stop.
make: Entering an unknown directorymake: Leaving an unknown directorymake[3]: *** [_sfdep_xfs] Error 2
make[3]: Leaving directory `/exp/src1/kernels/2.4.23/Desktop/linux-2.4.23/fs'

make[1]: *** [_sfdep_fs] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/exp/src1/kernels/2.4.23/Desktop/linux-2.4.23'
make: *** [dep-files] Error 2

The main problem?

root:/usr/src/kernels/2.4.23/Desktop/linux-2.4.23# grep -i xfs .config   
# CONFIG_XFS_FS is not set
# CONFIG_XFS_QUOTA is not set
# CONFIG_XFS_RT is not set
# CONFIG_XFS_TRACE is not set
# CONFIG_XFS_DEBUG is not set

      These are MY OPINIONS ALONE.  I speak for no-one else.

Life is not a destination, it's a journey.
  Microsoft produces 15 car pileups on the highway.
    Don't stop traffic to stand and gawk at the tragedy.
